As a Jewish State  &&04;srael  seems to be getting  obsolete. So after  the  collapse  of Israel another  Jewish State will emerge  but  antisemitism will show at where will happen  this.

A suggestion I like that I saw elsewhere is to reinforce the message of reciprocity and proportionality by simply launching one strike on Gaza for every Rocket that enters Israeli airspace - hard to get the same sort of media language of "Israeli escalation" etc if there is a rule set in stone as it were, not even Hamas could really convincingly argue that any action was "escalation" if that simple tit-for-tat reaction to rocket launches. 
The problem with the current action is mainly the negative PR for Israel, the world's media is again portraying this as Israel's "choice", sticking to a basic rule that everyone understands would act as a persistent deterrent and prevent the gradual build up of action leading to flashpoints.
