    - whether international law, & espec. the geneva convention, really doesn't allow for a state like israel to react militarily (on a grand scale) to a constant & growing threat from a neighbouring territory, which in addition is openly & provocatively sworn to israel's destruction. in spite of the territory being densely populated. plus, this is not only about daily qassams. hamas is building up militarily over time & will keep doing so, so the general threat will only increase, making an invasion inevitable in any case. given that, the task will only grow in difficulty. this is a very serious issue but: where did israeli military ingenuity & former ability to deal w/impossible tasks go? they could start the operation by first kidnapping /killing ALL of the hamas leadership, & definitely taking out meshal. btw, israel IS engaged in a serious peace move & negotiations now, so international opinion would at worst be divided as to supporting a grand scale operation /not, rgs & hello,
