If rockets were fired from the Cherokee Indian reservation into the U.S. how long would it take for the military to respond? Would the U.S. have absorbed 8-10 thousand rocket attacks over 2-3 years before responding? Of course not! Israel has shown the most remarkable restraint of any country I can think of, in all of history. Egypt should be worried because they share a border with Gaza and participate in the blockade with Israel. When Pals have flooded into Egypt they use the same tactics of defense that Israel does. With one difference, they receive no criticism. While Hamas plays the shell game(using different terrorist group names) of rocket attacks, Israel can't fight back without enduring world condemnation. They are the only country denied the right of self defense a good for the Pals and a bad deal for Israel.
