    After tolerating the continuous barage of Qassam rockets from Gaza that have killed, injured and terrorized Israelis and damaged property, the Israeli security cabinet has voted to disupt power and fuel supplies to Gaza.
    The cabinet also voted to NOT disrupt the water supply.

    Hamas, after a violent takeover of the Gaza strip, declared that it would do nothing to prevent organizations from launching attacks into Israel, claiming it is not their responsibility to secure Israel's borders. Hamas, a terror organization that gained political power when the Arab Palestinians elected them into office, is now claiming that Israel's actions is collective punishment and is also a declaration of war (as if thousands of Qassam rockets are to be viewed as an olive branch).

    A couple of years ago a Palestinian univeristy surveyed the Arab-Palestinians and the survey revealed that about 75% of the Arab-Palestinians were in favor of a continued intifada and wanted the Jews pushed all the way out of Israel. There is a reason why the terrorist organizations attack from Gaza with impunity (from Arab-Palestinian reprisal); the Arab-Palestinians are in favor of the attacks! This is not "collective punishment" of the whole because of the actions of a few.

    If Hamas was to preach Israel destruction and fire daily missile attacks into Israel, then Israel should take off the gloves and sufficate Hamadastan!
