If there would have been a response by Olmert after the FIRST rocket, not the 8,000th, the Pals would understand the Israelis mean business. Why is Israel obligated to sent anything to Gaza, after all the terror they initiated. The so-called blockade, that doesn't exist, is a result of Hamas behaviour. How much can the Israelis take. In truth, electricity and water should be shut, too. Why should Israel have ANY obligation to supply an enemy bent on Israel's total destruction. Let Iran and Syria supply their evil cousins. If the the shoe was on the other foot, Israelis would get zero, zippo, from Gaza, only non-stop bombs. Time to stop apologizing for the awful behaviour of Gazans.
