    Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman revealed during an interview with the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) that Israel knew who was responsible for the recent upsurge of rocket fire from Gaza into Israel.

    Liberman made it clear that Israel would do whatever was necessary to prevent fire at Israel and demanded that the government in Gaza take control of the situation in the Gaza Strip. In a direct appeal to the residents of Gaza, Liberman implored them to “make the rulers change direction for your children’s sake”.

    Lieberman also called on Hamas to reach an agreement with Israel regarding the bodies of Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, which the terror group has been holding since 2014’s Operation Protective Edge, adding that only the demilitarization of the Gaza Strip would lead to prosperity and rehabilitation in the region.

    “The time has come to stop digging tunnels and making missiles, and it’s time to think about the future of Gaza’s children,” said Liberman. The defense minister clarified that investment in Gaza infrastructure would not come from the Israeli taxpayer, but from international organizations.

    Referring to the situation in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria, Liberman said that Israel was maintaining the status quo on the Temple Mount and strongly criticized the head of the Palestinian Authority.

    “Mahmoud Abbas is misleading the Palestinian Arabs. Whether in the Gaza Strip, Judea and Samaria, or abroad,” said Liberman, who called for Abbas to negotiate with Israel. “There is no alternative to direct negotiations,” added Liberman.

    1. When a nation is belligerent in military action against you, practicing restraint is not the appropriate response. Especially, when it is repeated non-stop, as is the case here.

      Pretending we are at peace with an enemy only leads to more acts which grow in intensity of violence.

      The problem with taking this approach is that when you sit back and take hits for a long period of time? When you finally respond, the question is asked: “Why is now different? Before you could take the abuse and suddenly now you can’t?” and Israel is labeled the aggressor. However, if you don’t make a request in the first place but simply respond hard when you are fired at, or make some similarly appropriate response, then you are viewed as taking purely defensive action.

      As well, by letting them get away with military action upon Israel with no response, we are training them to act inappropriately. Its like having kids who hit their parents. By not doing anything to stop it, the situation goes on for so long, that when you have to take action? It has to be extra tough.

      Israel treats these acts as criminal activity from criminals instead of acts of war against Israel and Jews. This is the crux of the problem.

      When they do finally take action, people inevitably ask: “Since you treated them as criminals up til now (by considering the Arab side to have been peace partners) so in fact, you are violating this peace partnership by attacking them!”

      When instead, Israel should cancel the treaties as farces based on the multiplicity of acts of war against Israel from the “Peace Partner”. Since they don’t, they feed the illusion that a true peace partner exists, when the truth is just the opposite. It won’t get better.
