Iron dome was not designed for Qassam rockets but for longer range threats. A $100,000 Iron Dome missile is not the correct solution to a $5 Qassam. Instead Israel should use Land-Based Phalanx Weapon System to destroy the incoming threat. Additionally broad area counter battery fire from Israel artillery should be used to destroy the launch crews and those allowing them to use their neighborhoods to fire from. Yes this is both harsh and very disproportionate, but tit for tat will not force the enemy to surrender. Israel should make it hurt them much worse that it hurts us. The media will cry that was not fair for Israel to respond disproportionately but what would they say if Israelis fired Qassam rockets from Israel into Gaza’s civilian population centers and our government made similar statements as Hamas saying that it wasn’t government authorized.
