    The tolerance level to how many people are killed or injured in Sderot must be zero. And it is high time that we were wise enough to take the proper steps to stop it, and did something more creative than thinking about more military action that will only bring about more bloodshed on both sides and not solve the problem. This is exactly what I have been saying all along - there is no military solution to the Qassams. The West Bank and Gaza are not two separate entities: what Israel does in one directly affects the other. All those who shout for us to re-invade Gaza and insist that diplomacy will not work should keep in mind that diplomacy has never been tried long enough even to put it to the test, because there has never been a cease-fire on both fronts. Call a total cease fire on both sides - in both areas. Then see what the Palestinian government and the militants do. A halt in Israeli military operations just might let the wind out of their sails.
