A good sign?
Gazans have taken to the streets to protest the use of Beit Hanun to launch Kassam rockets against Israeli towns and villages. It looks like this is a direct result of Israel's military activities there.

A few days later: I'm now thinking this was no more than a manipulation for the foreign press and not a gauge of popular sentiment in any way. A popular cause can easily get tens of thousands of Gazans (inhabitants of what is probably one of the most densely populated place in the world) out onto the street. Here there were a measly few hundred. I am less than impressed.
