24. honestly it is too soon to tell whether or not Iron Dome will be 'good for peace'
if the past couple of days are an indication it surely doesn't look that way, at least 3 more grads have been fired and stopped by Iron Dome, according to Maan 14 killed including at least 5 civilians in Gaza due to Israeli retaliation
