Your version of how the Gaza war started is wishful thinking; it was provoked by Israel and the Qasams were only the pretext: "Sources in the defense establishment said Defense Minister Ehud Barak instructed the Israel Defense Forces to prepare for the operation over six months ago( Aug 2008), even as Israel was beginning to negotiate a ceasefire agreement with Hamas. According to the sources, Barak maintained that although the lull would allow Hamas to prepare for a showdown with Israel, the Israeli army needed time to prepare, as well. Barak gave orders to carry out a comprehensive intelligence-gathering drive which sought to map out Hamas' security infrastructure, along with that of other militant organizations operating in the Strip." (Haaretz Feb 2, 2009) http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1050426.html Israel had also prepared a PR campaign in advance headed by Dan Gillerman. Your version of how the war started, Hillel, is folklore. Read the Haaretz article.
