    Gideon- are we proud of ourselves? Well let's think about it....NO....I for one am not proud that I sat in the middle of the country in coffee shops- in parks- on picnics- and in my back yard watching my kids playing happily , while kids in the South were traumatized by katyushot. NO I am not proud of that. It took hundreds of missiles and years until we finally did more than talk and fought for our own in the South of the country. What other country would wait that long? All the rest of your emotive and almost hypothetically phrased mis-directed questions you should be asking the leaders of the Palestinians in Gaza. They are responsible for what they decided to do in Gaza- and the direction that their leadership took against Israel...and they are responsible for the price their people pay as we defended our citizens. It is not nice Gideon. But apart from getting up and leaving Israel what solutions are you providing?
