I know i wasent suprised to read this:

Five IDF soldiers sustained light wounds after a Qassam rocket landed in a military base south of Ashkelon Thursday morning.
The rocket landed around 9:45 a.m. near the base’s dining hall, which was crowded with soldiers and officers at the time of the attack. The battalion in question has been deployed to the area to address terror threats in the northern Gaza Strip.

It turns out the goverment knew this was going to happen!

Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz has instructed the IDF to prepare for an expected terror wave from the Gaza Strip, Israel’s leading newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported Wednesday.
During a meeting with IDF Southern Command officials Tuesday, Mofaz ordered forces around Gaza to prepare for a renewed, extensive terror

Do you need any more reasons on why the surender / explusion was bad ?

While i dont like yisrael katz (likud) he makes some good points here

Extreme solution? Israel should bomb the Gaza Strip and force residents in some areas to flee to the Sinai desert in Egypt, Agriculture Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud) proposed in response to ongoing Qassam rocket attacks from Gaza.

According to sedorot mayor Eli moyal

Moyal slammed the army's policy regarding a response to Qassam fire, saying the IDF fires shells that have passed their expiration date.
"They also fire at open fields because they don't really plan to eliminate Qassam fire. If they had intended on seriously operating, they would not fire old shells and certainly would not fire at open fields, something which has no effect."

Now the left starts to ramble some more lame crap.

Yoav Limor, Channel One’s military correspondent, said today that a ground-forces entry into Gaza is not in the cards. "Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is not likely," Limor told Army Radio, "to endanger practically his sole accomplishment of his term - the disengagement from Gaza - while paying a heavy political, international and even economic price... Not to mention his bad experience with [Israel's entry into] Lebanon [in 1982 when Sharon was Defense Minister]..."Limor said, "There is no real military solution to Kassam rockets. The only time there could have been was on Jan. 30, 2001, when the first mortar shell was fired from Gaza, landing on a house in Netzarim. Israel should have responded then, but now it's too late. Another date on which action could possibly have been taken was three months ago, on Sept 14, 2005, when the first post-disengagement shell was fired from Gaza."
