On a post over at TAH I left this comment:
I have proposed before that Israel should have used an exactly proportional response all along. An eye for an eye, tit for tat, missile for missile, etc. Even homicide bombers could be dealt with similarly.
Maybe, just maybe, the bleeding hearts would have to face facts?
As it is Israeli is being led down a path by Hamas, et al.
Iran and their various surrogates could care less about public opinion. Has anyone seen a sign that THEY care about the deaths of there own people? Except to further their agenda.
Netanyahu is a great man, but his own words point out the weakness of the disproportionate response: [so long as the international community] ultimately holds Israel responsible for the casualties that ensue, then Hamas and other terror organizations will employ this abominable tactic again and again.
Today no less than Daniel Pipes weighs in with a similar slant.
From the Israeli withdrawal in 2005 until now, Hamas has launched over 6,500 missiles into Israel. Incredibly, Israelis endured nearly eight attacks a day for three years; why?
From an article here.
I’m thinking the proper response might be to line up every bulldozer in Israel and push Gaza into Egypt.
