Gideon, "What would happen if Israel were to turn to the world and call upon it to enlist in the cause of support for the residents of Gaza, to donate and invest money to help them out of their utter poverty? If an Israeli prime minister did such a thing and at the same time called for a meeting with his elected Palestinian counterpart, it would create far more effective and positive pressure than any cannon fire." Don't try to persuade us we wouldn't do it. We have sufficient thinking minds who are planning the situations. Don't you think that, they would think what you think. The reply is very clear. If we do your suggestions, Pals would replay the same game like they had in the past. The Palestinians would interpret this action as a weakness of Israel like we did withdraw from Gaza. They would start to Qassam more fiercly than today to weep out Israel from the map. If Israel does such a thing Haniyeh will start to demand to withdraw to 1967 borders.
