To find myself in agreement with both Clickfool and Lakshmi is anathema to me and, while I don't concur with the "war crimes" and other anti-Israel bias nonsense in their posts, we are on the same page as far as the absolute idiocy of applying ANY collective punishment. It is a stupid, uncreative and guaranteed invitation to vilification; to international trials and sanctions and it is unnecessary. Weapons aggression (Qassams) should be met either with equal or stronger weapons or with the continued search and destroy retaliations. For God's sake, most Palestinians have it hard enough with the results of their own failed 60 years of being badly led and refusing a sane solution. Find and destroy the killers. Try to avoid hurting the rest.
