Disproportionate? The Palestinian government does nothing to stop the firing of Qassam Rockets at Israeli schools in the Negev, and what Israel does is "disproportionate"? The Palestinians kill American tourists, school children, and the elderly, and what Israel does is "disproportionate"? If one were to listen to left wing and Arab propaganda, it would seem Israel can do no right, and the Palestinians can do no wrong. It seems that no matter what, Arab and European governments and people think up excuses pardoning the Palestinian people and government. Seven people die due to a tragic mistake, and they call it a "massacre". I wonder whether Arab governments would call the brutal deaths of dozens outside of a falafal stand in Tel Aviv a "massacre". Wait, there was a delibrate massacre of civilians outside a falafal stand in Tel Aviv, and Arab governments issued no statements strongly condemning the attack.
