AP - Israel declared the Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip an "enemy entity" on Wednesday and said it would cut utilities to the territory. The move complicates a U.S. plan to relaunch peace talks aimed at establishing a separate Palestinian state in Gaza and the West Bank.

Hamas refuses to make peace wth Israel. The international community including Israel put three conditions on Hamas, which are to recognize Israel's right to exist, denounce terrorism and honor previous agreements. Hamas rejected the three condtions. Hamas made clear they reject Israel's right to exis tand still fire Qassem rockets intending to kill innocent Israeli civilians. The rocket attacks are hitting Sderot and ashkelon to a lesser extant. Those rocket attacks are the result of Israel's stupid disengagement from Gaza.
Outside of Israel, people tend to disregard and under-estimate the quantity of these rockets from Gaza. i understand that the numbers are very considerable and the situation is unacceptable. Is this not so?
