Proportionate means that you kill or jail only the perpetrators. Peretz is right in saying that we are not at war with the Palestinians only with the terrorists. This obliges us to be extra careful when dealing with the civilian population whom we want to be our allies in the struggle against terrorism. Your sarcasm is not helpful in trying to attain this goal. About the referendum. It's not for Israel's sake. As Olmert stated correctly it's a part of the internal struggle between Fatah and Hamas. But it's a positive step, even if it will not serve as a basis for negotiations. It will strenghten Abbas and this is in our interest.
