The attacks in the south were terrible. And they are blown out of proportion. Reading some talkbacks on Israeli websites, one would think Oklahoma City and the World Trade center never happened. And the attacks at Ft Hood never happened either. What happened was terrible. What is happening in Gaza is terrible, too. The Lebanese asked for equivalence at the UNSC. Every time anyone criticizes the Israeli government, Israel's government insists on an equivalence statement. And the hasbara always points out somewhere that is worse than Israel. How bigotry makes anybody's life better is beyond me. There is no justification for killing civilians. Period. There is damned little justification for deliberately targeting anybody when the chance is likely that civilians will be killed. If that implies, equivalence, then it does.
