There we go: Suicide bombing attacks 2001 - 2006: 2001 - 34 attacks - 85 deaths 2002 - 55 attacks - 220 deaths 2003 - 25 attacks - 142 deaths 2004 - 14 attacks - 55 deaths 2005 - 7 attacks - 22 deaths 2006 - 4 attacks - 15 deaths Total - 139 attacks - 539 deaths What do you think about Cast Lead following all that, not to mention 8000 rockets into Israel, was it not a good reason to react ? Yeah, it was too strong... The famously bragging Hamas disappeared behind their women...
