Israel's non-response

Shavua tov, a good week to everyone.

It's ten days to the elections and this morning a Kassam rocket hit an open area outside of Ashkelon proving once again that Israel did not restore its deterrence by pounding Gaza three weeks ago. It will be interesting to see whether the 'Palestinians' try to goad the government into a response between now and the elections.

Meanwhile, the Egyptians have decided that the best way to prevent weapons smuggling at the Rafah crossing point from Egypt to Gaza is with cameras and sensors. You didn't really expect them to commit troops, did you?
The sources said Egyptian authorities had begun installing the equipment two days ago with joint US, French and German expertise, and added that they hoped the sensors and cameras would help detect any tunnel construction in the border area.

"Cables that are part of a tunnel detection device are being installed along the Gaza-Egypt border," a security source said, adding the cables were being installed from south of Rafah to the Mediterranean coast.

The source said some cameras and sensors had already been installed, and the cameras would be connected by the cables.
Meanwhile, Israel's government remains silent as if we have no stake in what's going on.

Its a reminder of how much could have been accomplished had the politicians not pulled the plug on "Operation Cast Lead."
