http://www.businessweek.com/news/2014-03-12/israel-s-liberman-calls-for-gaza-reoccupation-after-rocket-fire
This follows a forty-one rocket barrage from Gaza into Israeli territory...

One wonders if just Nuking the whole region barren, would make things better...

He doesn't know what he's talking about. A reoccupation would have a much higher cost in lives than the current status quo. The current blockade and reprisals for attacks is the only option that works, if not perfectly.

It's clear that some people are so desperate to speak they say things without bothering to think about them.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Israel should resume military control of the Gaza Strip after a barrage of 41 rockets was fired from the Palestinian territory. No injuries or damage were reported.

The often-omitted reality of these rocket attacks is that they generally don't work.

The number of Palestinians killed by the IDF far outstrips the number of deaths from Gaza rockets.

That's how death cults work.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

They don't actually need to hit their targets to cause disruption, fear and at times trauma for schoolkids. It's called 'terrorism' for a reason.

If you're worried about the psychic distress of children, then you should really oppose Israeli action in Gaza.

Ah yes, because $#!% blowing up in the middle of the desert but close enough for people to hear it is totally equivalent to having guns fired at you, being jailed without trial, having your house confiscated or demolished, and being unable to leave your town of residence for days and weeks at a time. Totally just as bad.

I never said that. At any rate, two wrongs don't make a right.
