"well if making sonic booms over Gaza is not terrorism, then I don`t know what is." Nonsense. Terrorists attempt MAXIMUM civilian and innocent deaths. Hence all the Palestinian terrorists murdering Israelis in buses, restaurants, malls. Israel attempts MINIMUM civilian deaths. "One reason for my sympathies is that these conflicts are so unequal, e.g. throwing a stone hardly equates with a high velocity bullet, and firing a crude rocket hardly equates with rockets fired from Apache helicopters, or from F16s." You should rethink this. There is no moral equivalency between the two societies. The Palestinians society has embraced terrorism and sanctions and celebrates Israeli children and civilian deaths. The Palestinians pass out "sweets" to celebrate the deaths of Israeli civilians. Israel only arrests and kills Palestinians terrorists because the Palestinians refuse to do so themselves.
