    Israel should announce in advance a target in Gaza to be destroyed when the next rocket or rockets land in Israel. Hence, the Gazans will have been given notice to get out of the target area and save their lives, and if they don't get out they should prepare for the ascent to heaven. In any case it then becomes clear that it is Gaza that is pressing the button for the Israeli strikes, not Israel. Who could fairly fault Israel for the strikes? Similarly israel should tell the Turks planning to test the blockade that once they cross into Israeli waters they will be sunk (not boarded). The world will complain about israel nevertheless but it will be clear that the Gazans and Turks brought it on themselves. If the finger is not pointed at them then it will be clear that it is strictly anti Semitism at work.
