A question, maybe best for the israelis on the board. When there were settlements in gaza, there was limited or no rocket fire into israel proper. Gush Katif was periodically infiltrated, but do you know if it was also subjected to rockets? Could the rockets at the time simply not reach farther?

There were no rockets at the time because Israel had the whole gaza strip under military occupation. The points of friction were different. Israeli soldiers and settlers were being attacked by Hamas and others inside the strip, so there wasn't much focus on Gush Katif or other towns within Israel. Now Gaza is practically a separate country under Hamas control, and the friction is at and across the border.
