Since the rockets stopped, the cashflow stopped / got much less. I think Sderot is absolutely symbolical for all of Israel. This country needs the conflict like it needs the air to breathe. What would become of this "state" if it wasn`t for US and EU taxpayer dollars ? This money, however would mostlikely not flow, if Israel could not claim to be the victim of "evil people, that also threaten the western world" The Americans were stupid enough to go along with that for decades and the Europeans were consumed with guilt and thus went along as well. Although here and there one sees a spark of change, but nothing substantial. And so my friends, the conflict will continue. Or, with a bit of "luck" Israel might be able to create a new conflict with Iran. They are well on their way. And mostlikely, the intelligent US will fight it for them. Or will they... ?
