The situation in Gaza is hardly similar to lebanon.Israel was certified as having withdrawn from all lebanese territory.Israel still controls the air space, the waters and most of the borders of gaza and is occupying three quarters of the rest of palestine.The situation is muddy at best.As far as I am concerned they can smash hamas all they like and I will cheer the IDF.The point was however that without a political framework to give it deeper and more long term legitimacy this will not achieve anything more than a temporary respite.So do it by all means, but if these rockest were flying from an independant palestinian state in violation of international law and legally binding treaties, the situation would be much clearer and in israels favour.
