58% of Israelis think there is a military solution to the Qassam rockets - are they right?

58% of Israelis believe there is a military solution for the Qassam rockets, and 48% think disengagement was a mistake. 19% believe that Bibi Netanyahu can solve the problem. 12% rely on Lieberman. Barak and Ayalon get about 7% each, with Olmert getting only 1%. Israelis don't have much confidence in Olmert. Bibi would talk the rockets to death.
I am also convinced there is a "military solution" - but it is not exactly what other Israelis may have in mind. There is a "military solution" for everything, but it has a price, and people do not necessarily want to pay the price. The nation which showed a whining crying woman fleeing the north of Israel in last summer's war over and over on its TV screens, should consider if it is willing to have a war with Syria. The army that stopped an attack when 12 people were killed should think seriously about the consequences of a war with Syria, or worse, of retaking Gaza without having the war with Syria.
It is very hard for people to understand that the rockets launched physically in Gaza, are, for all intents and purpose,s REALLY launched from Damascus and Tehran, and that a war with Syria would be far more serious than a war with Hezbollah. Would returning the Golan heights stop the rockets in Gaza? It might. It is a possibility that cannot be ignored.
