Enough is enough is what MKs had to say on Saturday night, in the wake of the continued escalation in southern Israel.
MK Danny Danon (Likud), a member of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, said that Israel should turn off the electricity in Gaza in response to the continued terror attacks.
“We must turn off the power in Gaza until the rocket fire on southern residents ends," said Danon. “We need to send Hamas into its bunkers and shake Gaza until we bring an end to the threat on the residents of the south.”
MK Ofir Akunis (Likud) said, “The Palestinians are proving once again that there is no choice other than broad military action in Gaza. We must do what it takes to restore the deterrence on the streets of Gaza and bring the quiet back to southern Israel's communities.”
Information and Diaspora Minister Yuli Edelstein also called for action and said, “The zero hour has arrived. The State of Israel is sinful towards itself when it continues to abandon the lives of a million people. It’s time to deal a blow to the terrorist nests and immediately restore Israel's deterrence and the quiet in the south.”
Kadima chairman Shaul Mofaz, a former IDF Chief of Staff and Defense Minister, said on Saturday night, “It is time for a deep and thorough treatment of Gaza terrorism. The terrorist organizations should be engaged in saving their own lives rather than in planning attacks.”
Mofaz added, “The political echelon should allow the IDF to act powerfully wherever necessary. Stuttering by Israel will be answered by acts of terrorism. The heads of the terrorist organizations should be a primary and immediate target. We knew how to reach them in the past. The IDF knows how act. It should be allowed to do so. Israel's security comes before any election. I back up the Prime Minister on this matter.”
The chairman of the State Control Committee, MK Uri Ariel (National Union), said, “The Israeli softness in the face of the growing terrorism in the south over the last month must stop. It’s time to let the IDF win once again, to stop being afraid of the reaction of world nations, to work deep inside Gaza and to finally put an end to the terror state that Israel created with its own hands.”
On Saturday night, IAF aircraft attacked a terrorist squad in northern Gaza that was in the midst of an attempt to fire rockets at southern Israel.
The IDF said in a statement that a direct hit was detected. Sources in the Palestinian Authority said that a terrorist from the Islamic Jihad group was killed in the airstrike.
Later airstrikes targeted nine additional terror targets in northern and southern Gaza.

I'm with Danny Danon.
Cut off the power from Israel to Gaza.
If the rocket fire continues from Jihad Armed Camp Gaza: cut off the food shipments from Israel (and cut off access to free top-notch Israeli medical care; let their brother Muslims in Egypt, or in the filthy-rich Gulf States, look after those Muslims from Gaza who need advanced medical care).
They can grow their own food and/ or get food from their brother Muslims in Egypt; most Muslims in Gaza are of Egyptian Arab Muslim ancestry, anyway, they admitted as much in public not so long ago.
If the rocket fire still continues: stop supplying water.
Again: the Gazan Mohammedan Mob can dig wells, catch and ration rainwater (the rainy season has begun, in the eastern Mediterranean), or get it trucked or piped in rom Egypt. And ask the rich arab Muslims in the Gulf, to stump up for desalination plants.
If the rocket fire still continues: start at one end of Gaza and proceed to the other, giving the place - a seething hell-pit of nonsense and lies, of megalomaniacal dreams of an Islam-darkened world ruled by sharia thugs, and of mass-murderous screaming hysterical Jew-hatred - tsomething like the treatment hat Hitler's Nazi Berlin got in WWII. Fire from heaven. Start by obliterating every known mosque, that is, military base/ propaganda-and-recruitment-centre/ arsenal/ arms factory/ magazine.
Do not apologise, do not explain., neither before, during nor afterward.
