Israel prefers Hamas rockets to popular protests because the popular protests make it difficult for Israel to claim to be the "victims" in the eyes of the World. The PA has no control over the efforts of the people of Bil'in and Nil'in...it is the voice of the Palestinian people who are very frustrated with false promises and no results from 20 years of "peace" negotiations. I hope these popular protests continue and grow in number. They are the most effective tool to end the Israeli occupation.
