Giora Eiland Intelligent solutions for Gaza rockets

http://zionism-israel.com/israel_news/2007/05/giora-eiland-intelligent-solutions-for.html

Giora Eiland provides some professional and intelligent options for ending Gaza rocket attacks. They do not require Israel to re-occupy the Gaza Strip and fall short of dismantling the Palestinian authority. They are intelligent and professional and relatively moderate.
 
The problem is that they probably will not work.
 
Option A:
 
 Option A: Capturing areas in the Gaza Strip, particularly the Philadelphi Route - while not sufficing with capturing the Route, which  is too narrow to protect, and widening it. The implication of this would be the destruction of hundreds of homes in Rafah and thousands of homeless people. This will create an international outcry and spark the ire of the Egyptians – which is a good thing! Israel would insist that it would withdraw its troops only if and when a satisfactory security arrangement is hammered out. Such a settlement is possible and Israel should reach an agreement on it with the US prior to an operation.
 
As long as Hamas is in power outside the captured areas, our soldiers will be sitting ducks for kidnapping schemes and other guerilla actions.
 
Option B:
 
Option B: Israel announces that as far as it is concerned Gaza is a political entity (separate from the West Bank,) which is ruled pragmatically and formally by Hamas. As this entity is in a state of war with Israel, Israel would have to take three measures:

  • Immediately close off border crossings between Israel and Gaza (as Gaza is open to Egypt, supplies to and from Gaza could be transferred through there.)

  • Announce that in several months Israel would cease to supply water, electricity and fuel.
  • Since Gaza is an enemy state in a state of war with Israel, every governing institution in Gaza and the infrastructure serving the belligerent effort against us, including roads and bridges, should be targeted.
Any such activities will build tremendous sympathy for the persecuted Palestinians around the world. As they, like the Option A, would drag on for months, Israel would find itself increasingly isolated, and also subject to increasing Hamas attacks. The State Department birdie that says "excercise restraint" will be trotted out of its cage on a daily basis, and Condoleezza will be on the phone a lot, warning Israel not to harm the democratically elected government of Mahmud Abbas.
 
The only real solution is either to get an international force to govern Gaza and make order, or failing that, to reoccupy Gaza and disarm the Hamas. Whatever is done, must be over in a few days. However, it is not practical to do that now. When the rockets reach Ashqelon, it will have to be done.  Israel should be doing much more to try to get a diplomatic solution to the problem, and to prepare world opinion for the possibility of Israel action.

  • I think the only option is to forcibly remove everyone from Gaza,the security of Israel is paramount,any security issues should be dealt with by expelling the palestinians we have been too soft with them,so what if we are condemned by the international community,we are always condemned,we are the chosen people we have God on our side!
