KA your logic is completely wrong. You wrote: "the Palestinians have every right to deter Israel to refrain from murdering their children and women and old men at will." This may be true indeed. Howver, the offensive launching of rockets at civilian population centeers in order to draw your neighbor into conflict to shift attention from your own internal civil war does not in any way act as a deterant. If anything, it can clearly be seen as an instigation that aims to bait Israel to respond so that Palestinian children and woemn will be put at risk...the very opposite thing that you say they have a right to deter. You can not claim to be acting to deter attacks on your civilian population by engaging in the exact actions that you know will put them in harms way. That is a logical obscenity and an imbecilic argument by you devoid of reason. The true logical extension would be, if Hamas wanted to detere Israel, they would work to live side by side in peace, not attack her towns.
