Israel and Gaza


Israel absolutely has the right to defend itself. And Hamas is no angel. But what Israel has been doing to Gaza (and its civilians) in the last few weeks is not only nuts, but sadistic. And the international reaction? Worthless words asking Israel to please cut it out. Unbelievable.

Israel's response to Hamas's relentless barrage of rockets at civilians isn't sadistic. It is direct, measured, and, I hope, will put a stop to Hamas, at least for a while.

"Direct, measured".

You've been reading different statistics than I have.

I think exactly the same, Jim. I've been thinking about putting something on my blog about it for a while.

Letting someone else make an argument for you, anon, is always a sign that you've carefully evaluated asituation from both sides and have come to your own opinion through the process of critical thought.

No, wait, it means the exact opposite of those things.
