    1. Trying to launch a rocket is a criminal act. It is attempted murder. Attempted murder is a crime. Criminals as these need to be eliminated. 2. All of us here can see your biases. "Resistance factions?" Really? Who are they resisting by shooting missiles into civilian populations? Are the people of the Western Negev responsible for governmental actions regarding Gaza, whatever they be? A legitimate "resistance faction" is one who resists those who are oppressing him. In this case, you could argue it is the IDF. If they wanted to plant roadside bombs and shoot mortars at IDF outposts, then maybe they could be called 'resistance fighters' or even 'militants.' Blindly shooting rockets into civilian populations however is, and will always remain, 'terrorism.' 3. When does the criminal (remember 50 rockets recently) have the power to call a cease-fire? They should only be lucky that Israel accepts any halting of any kind. They must realize that Gaza will only remain such a disaster if they continue to shoot themselves in the foot.
