    Israelis, whether living within or outside the reach of Hamas' rockets, should vote out of office their current government and elect one that truly wants a just peace with the Palestinians. By re-electing the same deviants--if one applies the same standard to Israelis that Israelis apply to Palestinians--every Israeli citizen is morally responsible for the actions of their government and the inevitable consequences of the occupation and blockade. In fact, apply a different standard, perhaps the one applied to criminal behavior in the United States--namely that one is criminally responsible for the clearly foreseeable results of their behavior. By electing government aften government that every Israeli knows for a fact is not interested in peace, the Israeli electorate is criminally responsible for the foreseeable consequences of its government actions.
