    During the last few years there were many in the Arab World who called for the destruction of Israel. However: Only two managed to gather serious support for this idea. Nasrala and Hanye. They were the only ones who said exactly HOW they would destroy Israel! Nasrala bought about 40,000 rockets showing (with the help of the Israeli media) that he is THE force to be reckoned with. Hanye, somewhat more modest, managed to accumulate 10,000 rockets. What happened during this Pillar of Fog mini-war? Hanye launched his rockets and lo! Nothing happened! ie, for 1000 rockets he achieved 3 dead. This fact will have a really MAJOR effect on the future of both Nasrala and Hamas and, Iran. Imagine Nasrala waking up tomorrow saying he will launch 40,000 rockets on Israel. This time however, there would be many who will say yeah, right! For every 1000 rockets you will kill 3 Israelis, so for your 40,000 rockets you will kill 120! Nonsense! You simply CANNOT win a war like this. The Iron Dome IS the new deterrent.
