There are many smart people in Israel, but unfortunately few seem to understand that the policy of illegal occupation and settlement expansion isn't the right approach.
It's also depressing that this seems to be the limits of Israeli security policy. I mean how many times have we been through the semi-identical situation of Hamas rockets, Israeli airstrikes, until eventually either Hamas runs out of rockets or the IDF goes in on the ground and destroy their stockpiles? End result is that Hamas remains firmly in control and everyone picks up the pieces while they wait for the next round in 6/12/18 months.
