Israels response to the Qassams has been so much hand wringing and incompetent dithering when they could have conducted an operation into Gaza long ago which would have halted these attacks. The Qassams, which are 15th century technology out of China, with nothing added, must be built up into a menace which threatens the very existance of Israel. This would hopefully bring in more money from America, and would create sympathy for Israel in the eyes of the world, and would justify Israeli foot dragging on the peace process, and would serve as a permanent justification for Israeli attacks upon Palestinians. So much good comes from a few erratic firecrackers.
