    Qassams from Gaza started (in post disengagement times) by Islamic Jihad responding to IDF hunting their operatives in the WEST BANK. Israel wanted a delux cease fire, it would operate in WB as usual, but will observe a cease fire in Gaza. The IJ apparently rejects this logic. Israel has a few options (and I exclude the options of "reoccupation" or more cannons): 1. Israel can enter into a hudna which Hamas is offering. This no doubt will include the West Bank. It is possible Hamas can control the other factions and observe the hudna. (But a hudna would let Hamas get stronger now, and will merely delay Judgment Day, so I don`t like the option.) 2. FREE Gaza completely. Let Israel stop controls of air, sea, and Egypt border (indirectly). An independent Gaza is not protected by Geneva Convention, electricity cutoff is possible response to Qassams. Gaza can be pacified by "peaceful" means. 3. Start peace talks with Abbas while observing a hudna with Hamas. (Follow my peace plan.)
