The article says: "Amir Peretz ... requested an examination of options for reoccupying areas of Gaza from which rockets are fired in order to distance the fire from Israeli communities." Qassam rockets were fired almost daily from Gaza when Israel occupied all of Gaza, so what good would reoccupying Gaza do. I'd be all for that idea if it proved to be the solution to the Qassams. But before the disengagement things were just as bad as now. But perhaps Israel should reoccupy Gaza for other reasons. This huge concession by Israel has not done any good whatsoever. It has not brought the region one inch closer towards peace. On the contrary, since the disengagement the Palestinians elected a party that refuses to even recognize Israel's existence. Israel has learned a lesson about making major concessions to the Palestinians.
