(cont) Here is people that have fought like this for centuries if not longer. Their enemy is now Israel but can be anyone that they feel like. It's time to grow up and play war to win, never to send a message, never as "an eye for an eye", never a "measured response". There is a need for tough love so the pacifists among the west bankers prevail and the bunch of thughs are eliminated. This will of course cause "collateral damage" The more now the less later. The response from Israel should not be dictated by PR, by trying to be "good guys", by remembering the holocaust. The response should be to eliminate further war and further interest to start new wars. If that means no more freedom of religion for the enemy, that's appropriate. The way of reducing deaths is by stopping this maddness. And that cannot done by "sending a message". Every artillery shell should find the recipient. This is not fireworks for (in America) fourth of july.
