BEN JABOs idea is not up for rational discussion. He believes to the very core of his being that if one side carries out a war crime then that allows the other side to carry out a bigger, bloodier, war crime in retaliation. It makes an Israeli war crime perfectly legitimate. Therefore Israel can - indeed, must! - deliberately turn its artillery on a civilian town, even if there is no military installation or military forces in that town. It's cold blooded murder of civilians - a "grave violation" in the words of the Geneva Conventions - and BEN JABO is perfectly cool with the idea. One war crime begats a bigger war crime in response. So very Old Testament. Just don't bother arguing with him - he understands the argument, and he's perfectly comfortable with what he is advocating.
