    I'm sure many talkbackers will do the same although a few will undoubtedly defend Gaza rocket attacks and affect outrage at any Israeli response. Oh yes, and let's see how many of the same assert that checkpoints in the West Bank are collective punishment while saying that the rockets from Gaza are "understandable" or are "resistance to the occupation" (or anything other than collective punishment). Their moral position at least is not without the humor of the grotesque. How difficult they make it to argue for the two state solution when attacks on Jews get a "tsk, tsk" and Israeli responses draw outrage.
