Chairman Ya'ir Farjun of the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council reacted, Thursday evening, to the launch of a rocket at the region by calling on the government to respond assertively.

Farjun said, "We are aware of the security tension generated in the region in recent days. The government must act assertively against terrorists and the IDF knows how to do it. Our communities are strong, but we cannot reconcile ourselves to the fire."

The problem of course is that the “Palestinian” arab terrorists are not reconciling themselves to a major beat-down for their acts of war.

So what about the larger picture? Does the ability of Islamic terrorists to launch rockets at Israel with little fear of any significant repraisal have negative implications for Israeli policy toward Gaza, or for the geopolitics of the Middle East? Might the foofaurauw over the matter be obscuring more important, longer-range points that deserve much more attention?

Yes, of course.

First and most localized, the relation of the “Palestinian” arab autonomous zones to Israel proper. It should be plain to anyone who can count that Israel must maintain control of the borders of those zones; the rockets they rain upon nearby Israeli villages express the Palestinian attitude toward Israel all too clearly. So the Palestinian territories, while they can be permitted "home rule," cannot yet be allowed to function as a sovereign state with the right of free passage over its own borders. The prospect of lethal weapons traffic into those zones is far too likely, and far too fearsome. Of course, that cuts no ice with those who'd like to see Israel destroyed, but Islamic terrorism is actually more destructive to islamics than to any external enemy.
