Clickfool, I like your stile. As to the specific question on Qassams, there is a day and night difference in the level of firings before and after Israel’s withdrawal from Gasa. Before there may have been an occasional incident or two but, for months now, it has reached intolerable levels and something has to be done about it. Since it is trivial, I am sure you are fully aware of the answer to your own question but cannot resist being so viciously an-Israel.
