How Israel Should Handle Violations Of The Ceasefire

An Israeli friend of mine sent this link over to me this morning, with a “nice ceasefire going on” message attached to it,

Ceasefire shattered? Residents of Israel’s south were rattled to hear the ‘Color Red’ rocket alert sirens blare throughout their towns twice on Tuesday afternoon as Palestinian terror groups launched two Qassam rockets from Gaza.

One of the rockers landed in the backyard of a house in Sderot, damaging the structure. No injuries were reported, though two women were treated for shock. The second rocket landed in an open area in the Sha’ar HaNegev Regional Council.

The Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the attack.

In Israel some feared that the death of a senior member of Islamic Jihad in the West Bank would prompt a retaliation from Gaza. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s office said the attacks were a flagrant violation of the ceasefire agreement, which went into effect last Thursday.

Do you know what Israel should do — and I’m dead serious about this — every time a missile flies into Israel, they should fire 5 back at important targets in the Palestinian territories — power plants, government buildings, large businesses, etc., etc.

Now, if they like, they could let the Palestinians know exactly what targets will be hit and pop off an air raid siren first, so that the people have 30 minutes to evacuate, which would minimize, but not eliminate casualties.

But, the important thing would be that every time a missile goes towards Israel, 5 more should go back in the other direction. Within a few weeks, there wouldn’t be any more missiles flying towards Israel or the Palestinians will have to walk over piles of rubble to bury their dead. Either way, it would be a big improvement over the current situation, which features millions of savages, led by terrorists, waging a low intensity war against Israel with genocide as its ultimate goal.

However, my guess is that if the Israelis ever get tired of fighting with both hands tied behind their backs and start blowing up enough Palestinian buildings and more importantly, killing enough Palestinians, suddenly the violence will stop and the peace in the Middle East that people have wanted for so long will become possible.
