The Article points out the advantage the militants-terrorist have on Israel when it comes to freedom of response. Israel has yet to find a balance between allowing to be a hostage to an international attitude towards its right to behave with the same potential as the militants. It is not possible as it stand now to overcome the Arab-Muslim voting advantage in all aspect of UN institutions. The clout that the vote coupled with the Oil element makes it quite a challenge for Israel to a fair contest. And here is the quandry in the position vis a visthe Palistinians. But there is a dilemma, the best way for Israel to respond to the Qassems is to allow the establishement of a state for them, then Israel will have the "moral" right-with regards to the concept of the sovereignty of a state-, but the Arabs are not in any hurry to accept the two-states solution because it is easy to hel he Israelis hostages in a state of lack of law and order, just like Somalia. Israel has to convince the international community that it is their potential fate, should the matter of the ME not being consider in a novel manner. Throw away the old norms, the world of tomorrow is far more challenging because of the precedents being created on the ground in the "Holy Land".
