They've already thought of that. Israeli Defence minister Ehud Barak: 

"The origin of these acts of terror is in Gaza and we will act against them in our full force and determination."

No evidence cited. Just a set-up for the ritual pounding of Israel's designated whipping boy.

Well as that great humanitarian and all around bonhomme IDF Chief of Staff Rafael Eitan once generously opined a few years back:

""When we have settled the land, all the
Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged
roaches in a bottle."

From the New York Times:

The Justice Department is investigating whether the nation’s largest credit ratings agency, Standard & Poor’s, improperly rated dozens of mortgage securities in the years leading up to the financial crisis, according to two people interviewed by the government and another briefed on such interviews.

Well no shit fellas, you bozos at the Times and Justice finally figured that one out?

So, look up his track record and see how he does on forecasting 2 years out and you will find out he might of well said 2020.
