Charge the Palestinian government for the running costs, just take costs off tax refunds...
2. The incessant shelling ...
... and missile fire is not going to stop unless and until Israel makes it stop. This will involve merciless shelling of Gaza, and doubtless many civilian casualties, but I put the lives of Israelis ahead of the lives of terrorist rabble -- and those who support them -- in Gaza. Let the international community screech and howl as much as they like -- they and their loved ones do not live in Sderot or Be'ersheva or Ashqelon. And the terrorist apologists such as Lady Ashton are more than welcome to go to Gaza and hold hands with their terrorist friends. Somehow, I think they'll decline the offer.

3. And where is DefenseLESS Minister Barak
when all this is happening...hiding under his bed shaking from fear? Can't expect any reponse from him obviously, besides "we will respond when the time is right", or some other garbage.
4. Mr A, Belgium
Please read between the lines. There is no Hamas and Fatah. There are all the same pali terrorists. Hamas is backing Abbas in his upcoming bid to UN. They both know that a harsh Israeli response will gather support for their bid at the UN, thus the constant provocation from Gaza. Barak et Al know this too and act accordingly. When the UN debate will be over, I guess it will be the case of the gloves off.

7. Iron Dome
Intercepted 2 out of how many rockets? It's time to go into Gaza and turn it into one big parking lot.

8. Attacks on Israel
It's high time for Israel to inform the world that any attack on Israel will be answered severely. Time to take the velvet gloves off.

9. Sorry, Mr. Jerome, but this has been going on
long enough, even before Abbas decided to make a fool of himself before the UN. He may not even go forward with his "status upgrade" plan. However, there is NO excuse for Israeli citizens having to suffer as they are suffering now. And that responsibility is the DefenseLESS Minister "Creampuff" Baraks responsibility to defend them and he is not doing his job. Whatever happens at the UN will never be favorable towards Israel, so its time to destroy the terrorists once and for all.

Charging the Pal government for the costs of the rocket attacks,including defensive measures'i.e. Iron Dome,for example, and the destruction of infrastructure and medical and psychological costs is an excellent idea.Removal of such monies from tax funds collected by the Israeli government for Fatah's West Bank government would place enormous pressure on Fatah to get the Hamas' thugs of Gaza to stop..Brilliant! In addition, the above combined with cutbacks in water and electrical power supplied by Israel to the Hamas government would create a very influential method of persuasion

The Iron Dome system only fires if the incoming rockets are projected to land in an inhabited area.They will not be launched if they are heading toward open country, lacking people.
