Ehud Barak says solution to Qassam threat to arrive 'faster than expected'

"A solution to the Qassams will be found faster than what most people believe," Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Wednesday night during a meeting with the heads of the western Negev communities at Sapir College, where 47-year-old Roni Yechiah found his death earlier in a rocket attack.
Yechiah was the 11th casualty of the incessant Qassam rocket fire from Gaza.
"This is a difficult day; we have one casualty and it is not easy at all," Barak said.
During the meeting explosions resulting from the IDF strikes on Gaza, which came in retaliation to Wednesday's multiple Qassam attacks on Israel, could be heard.

One casualty? That casualty represented an entire world! Shame on Ehud Barak for downgrading the value of a human being. Roni Yahya was a devoted husband, father and citizen. He deserved a great deal more from his own government which hasn't seen fit to eliminate the terrorist regime in Gaza that took his life. Every human being is immeasurably precious in the eyes of G-d and an Israeli official who can't understand the importance of that has no right to continue in office.

Well said. I will never understand how they can allow these savages to pound them with missiles and seemingly just shrug it off. In my mind they have forfeited their right to exist next to a people that offered to let them live peacefully as neighbors.
