    Yes, he is right that it is next to impossible to protect the 'home front' as the next war will be about missiles possibly armed with VX gas. Some of them will get through no matter how capable Israel's air defenses are. But Shohat does not think about what is the nature of an enemy who is willing to attack en masse the civilians of Israel with WMD. Is this a nation that one should come to a 'political agreement' with? Is a nation willing to fight a genocidal war one that Israel can sit down and discuss matters with? The answer is no and the military response of Israel to a genocidal war against her must be so complete - short of nuclear weapons, that Syria will be so broken no amount of international funding will be able to put it together again. And the leadership must be hunted and killed when found. That is the war Israel must fight with Syria so that it cannot pose a threat to Israel for generations upon generations.
