    I got no problem with actions against those who attack inocent Israelis. Israel has good reaon to object to the Qassams and bombings and the right to defend itself. But terrorism is wrong, no matter who does it. Israel has the surveilance, anti-missle and counter-fire technology to take out Qassams before or right after they're launched. The "pyromaniacs"are a small minority of Pals. Focus on them. There's no benefit to harming all Gazans. The 4th Geneva Convention not only prohibits collective punishment (Art. 33. No protected person may be punished for an offence he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited), it requires Occupiers to provide for their victims. ("Art. 55. [T]he Occupying Power has the duty of ensuring the food and medical supplies)..."). Israel signed and ratified the Gen. Conv., so it is bound by it. Without US veto, Israel will be held acccountable.
