    Hi Mark, I haven't seen a report on smuggled weapons. I anticipate "small" ones, including Katyushas unfortunately and, yes, shoulder held antiair missiles. They can't have tanks and cannons that will be seen and destroyed from the air easily, so a reinvasion will be more unpleasant but basically still a cakewalk. Regarding Netanyahu, he was premier already, so we know something about him. He never took back any city previously given to the Pals, and actually gave them Hebron, as per the Oslo obligation. But he stopped the Oslo process. Israel, including Netanyahu, really doesn't want the Arab population. Netanyahu will not take back overpopulated Gaza. He will be happy regarding it as a Bantustan and considering the other Palestinian large towns similarly. What will happen under him is a freeze of the process. Hamas will continue its resistance, it will get stronger, the PA will get weaker, and when the time again comes for a solution, the basic solution will be the same as today except that it will be more difficult to establish. Too bad if this happens, which is now a real possibility.
