    DT: "Yes, both can be punished, but by different means. The terrorists can be killed. The civilians can stop receiving aid that Israel supplied as an undeserved benefit for enemy aliens." David has just invented his own int'l law, even tho he is not Emperor of the World. David says: "The civilians can stop receiving aid" as if that is *all* that is required i.e. David need simply claim that: YOU ARE ALL UNDESERVING OF ISRAEL'S GIFTS! and Israel can then legitimately pull the plug. No, David, because Israel has OBLIGATIONS under Int'l Law, and doing what you suggest contravenes those LEGAL OBLIGATIONS. Article 50, Hague Regulations; the occupying power may impose NO PENALITIES WHATSOEVER upon civilians in retaliation for acts those civilians have not committed. Israel is imposing THESE PENALITIES in retalialiation for THOSE ROCKETS, and if you want to pretend otherwise then you are fooling absolutely NOBODY. You are, in short, delusional.
