    How would I have stopped the qassam rockets ... ? We have a saying here, which I like much for its (sad, so sad) truth: The stone a dimwitted has thrown into a well, ten wise men cannot recover. Here I am, not even one wise man, being asked how would I recover one of the many, so many stones, the deluded leaders of my country have thrown into the well, in the course of their 42-year disastrous mismanagement of our June '67 victory. I have no idea how to answer you directly, on how to extirpate from Gaza the religious fanatics who took possession of it in the name of their god, on June 2007, after PM Ariel Sharon's foolish unilateral disengagement. All I can say is, had I been elected instead of him, in Jan 28, 2003, Israel wouldn't be today plagued by an islamist enclave, nor would there be anyone in Gaza to launch rockets at Sderot. Mahmoud Abbas would have taken care of them. For a price, of course - he is no quisling: The negotiated end of the occupation. Which is, after all, Israel's own interest as the only way to ensure - given the demographics - its survival on the long term as a Jewish and democratic country.
