    Two quotes are appropriate here..."War is the continuation of policy (politics) by other means" and ?Given the same amount of intelligence, timidity will do a thousand times more damage than audacity? (both from K. Clausewitz). Daily rocket and mortar fire should and did motivate the Gaza adventurism. FTA:"...reflex dependency on Palestinian violence can be replaced by a world view appropriate to a Holy Land uncontaminated by terrorism." Uh, precisely when are Israel's neighbors going to stop taking potshots at civilians? On that day, Israel's views should change.
