When it comes to Israeli SELF DEFENSE the operative word is always DISPROPORTIONATE. Hamas fires crude, largely uneffective rockets into Israel and kills several people and does a little property damage. Israel retaliates with Apaches, F16s and heavy bombs in dense civilian areas killing hundreds....destroying infrastructure.(of course the Goldstone Report is lopsided...what do you expect when weaponry on the Israeli side is so much more effective and destructive?) A year passes and the Gazans still cannot rebuild not for lack of money but because Israel wants to stretch out the punishment and refuses basic buidling materials in. Few people in the world deny anyone or any nation the right to self defense. But what Israelis define as self defense most would call overkill and criminal, many like myself would call it INHUMANE. The world's 4th most powerful military could not find and surgically remove the rocket launchers IF they wanted to? Interesting question...no?
