    I am ignorant of Israeli defenses, but would it not be prudent to down any Israel-bound object while it is over the border itself, instead of waiting for it to do damage on the Israel side?

      Yes, total genius. Perhaps old fashioned machine gun bullets to tear the balloons open would stop them? A bit noisy nut probably effective. Occam‘s razor !!! And less drama. Probably the launchers would cease and desist if the balloons were simply shot down.

        You want too much from Jews, we don’t like simple solutions, we don’t take precautions until disaster is upon us. Many our moral teachers and leaders told about it, but it’s against the very garin of our national character at least if you are dealing with israelis. Why to bother if something bad could happen, if it couldn’t happen with equal probability, and explosives will drop not on my head, but in the open field.

    They want to leave for the outside Arab world because their Gaza is now the repugnant sewage wasteland they made out of the wonderful and rich land they have received as a gift from the Israel state. This is why all these border attacks.

    Environmentalists and “Green Peace” people: have you read this (your silence is deafening)……………….members of those progressive left-wing liberal organizations are likely not aware that a forest was attacked because:

    (1): The forest is located within Israel.
    (2): There was a Sponge Bob marathon running on TV at the time this breaking news event was released.

    A simple solution is not what it seems. shooting down balloons with bullets of course works. Except the bullets are not bright and when they fall from the sky they can and do injure kill . Witness the typical Arab wedding with idiots firing entire magazines into the air oblivious as to where this lethal cargo lands. However, eventually, they will use drones or laser weapons. As for Greenpeace like “stop the war ” They only seem to way in against Western democracy’s and of course a Israeli tree or forest is of no value in an environment where the Green peace executive sits around debating where to place blame.
