    Thank you Mark for that informative history lession. Now if the kassam is such a useless weapon, why is it causing such a camotion along the Israeli towns bordering Gaza. Because: THEY ARE EFFECTIVE IN CAUSING FEAR. They have not been very deadly YET. But they could be depending upon where they hit. If Israel shoots sophisticated weapons at Gaza, The bad PR caused by missing the mark by 10's of meters as observed by the coverage of the beach insident proves that Israel is to blame if it is not perfect. On the other hand, your useless weapons (Kassam's) are not accurate. There could be no undue critism of Israel for using them. I would hope that the Israeli Kassam would cause the same amount of destruction as the palestinian Qassams. not more. Qassams will not stop if all Israel does is shoot empty fields trying to kill the launchers. The fear caused by having kassams fall aimlessly into Gaza city or any other Gaza village would put pressure onthe PA to stop them
