I am always a bit amused that Zionist apologists always focus entirely on the number of missles, never on the fact that very few of them do any harm, most falling harmlessly into the desert. Fewer than 25 Israelis have died in Qassam attacks (last count I heard was 21). This in no way justifies or excuses the firing of unaimed rockets more likely to hit civilians than soldiers. That is a despicable practice I have always and will always condemn. But a kill raio of 1400:38 is extreme and undeniably disproportionate, especially since hundreds of the Palestinians killed were civilian noncombatants. Had Israel gone in focusing on Qassam firing fields and Hamas facilities, had it not destroyed schools, hospitals, apartment buildings and UN facilities, had it not deliberately timed and planned operations to maximize civilian terror (as found in Goldstone), there would be no Goldstone Report and most objections would be only from those who have always hated Israel.
