You point to "lawful self defense". Tell me, are the Palestinians allowed the same right? International Law allows for the "occupied" to use whatever means available to drive out the occupiers. Israel is renowned for "shooting the messenger". Maybe you could find the Youtube item where Mark Regev CONFIRMS the FACT that Hamas did NOT fire any rockets during the cease-fire and draw the conclusion that Israel did break said cease-fire, which resulted in 1400 dead Palestinians. I will not expand on, FANATIC AND COMPLETELY UNSCRUPULOUS, I'm sure you can work that out for yourself.
