By operating in Sderot for the past 4 years, under rocket fire escalations and supposed 'ceasefires', SMC's plans for the future rely upon a clear understanding on the following:
1. The "rocket reality" in Sderot and the Western Negev communities will continue unabated.
2. Gaza is the only Arab territory in the Middle East now ruled by a recognized international terrorist regime and run from Iran by remote control.
3. The residents of Sderot and the Western Negev residents under fire, especially the younger generation, will need decades of psychological help and rehabilitation to lead normal lives.
