    Gideon, though you speak passionately about how disproportionate the Operation Cast Lead was and how unfair the Gaza blockades are, you NEVER seem explain how you would solve the problem of dealing with the Hamas, the fairly genocidal, Iranian proxy force residing in Gaza. What would you do if you were leader of a country and your neighbor was leaking terrorists into your country, killing your civilians, firing tens of thousands of rockets onto your cities. Talk about rhetoric. Gideon, it's YOU that spews nothing but rhetoric because you NEVER approach this situation rationally. It's easy to say Israel is an oppressor without actually providing some rational solutions. It's easy to say Israelis are xenophobes with out actually addressing the issue of terrorism. I don't think I've actually seen the word terrorism or terrorist in your columns ever. Why do you avoid talking about Hamas? Really Gideon, I've been reading your columns for a long time, and it seems you've gone mad.
