This operation has nothing to do with defense, since it is a military offense. The cost has been three dead Israelis. What Israel needs to do is to level sanctions against Gaza for rocket attacks. The Israeli-Gaza border gates must be closed permanently until the Gazan rocket attacks end. Also, electricity, fuel and clean water from Israel to Gaza should be withheld for one hour for each rocket launched from Gaza into Israel. If the U. S. and the EU can level sanctions against Iran, Israel should be able to level sanctions against Gaza for unprovoked almost daily rocket attacks against Israel.
