Yup, the IDF is wise to fear this will recur over and over. Pitting unarmed extremists against a moral army is not symmetrical, and it grabs headlines. By stonewalling and avoiding negotiations, Israel has essentially abdicated the initiative totally and will continue to lose ground when the UN recognizes the Palestinian state. Bibi cannot stop the tsunami he predicts. He should immediately go to the negotiating table and freeze new settlements. The Arabs will look for anyway to prevail. the lives of their citizens are not part of the moral calculus, and slain extremists are morphed into martyrs. Israel needs some new ideas and to grab the initiative back.
