As dozens of Hamas inspired rockets fell on Israel soil, the Israel Defense Force, responded by firing missiles that killed at least four terrorists. They also fired shells which killed some innocent civilians. Israel Defense Minister Ehud Barak, hinted there might soon be a large scale attack on Islamic forces who are firing rockets. “We are moving closer,” he said, “to a broad and complex operation in Gaza.” It appears the Army of Islam has been firing the rockets without any real effort by Hamas to curtail such action.
At some point, Arab leaders have to cut off financial assistance to Hamas unless it agrees to halt rocket attacks. It is all well and good to hold a peace conference, but if rockets continue falling on Israel there will be a military response that most probably will result in the deaths of innocent Arabs.
