    The situation today was entirely predictable before Israel "disengaged" from Gaza. Qassams were being fired from Gaza, but Israel had NO effective policy against this, and still doesn't. Israeli response is now to fire cannons at EMPTY spaces is Gaza. Recently, cannon fire was allowed to approach residential areas, some Palestinians were hurt, and Israel put itself on the verge of a war-crime accusation. Whether the UN condemns this or not, war crimes nowadays can land officers in foreign jails (such as in Britain). Note that firing cannons on EMPTY areas is totally ineffective. The neighbors get fearful, maybe they become sleepless, but on a larger scale it makes no difference. Previously, Israel responded by creating sonic booms over Gaza. At least more people got scared, more children wetted their beds, but this had to stop due to concerns about war crime possibilities. The bottom line: Israel has no effective policy against Qassams from Gaza. What should Israel do? (Cont.)
