In a normal country, when an enemy threatens a soldier, then the soldier responds using overwhelming force, often lethal, in order to eliminate the threat. Even when an enemy combatant surrounds himself with women and children hostages, which is characteristic of Islamic "fighters", the soldier is obligated to eliminate the threat. It was only by the Grace of God that no Jewish soldiers were murdered in this incident. They foolishly prided themselves as they shouted to their comrades to avoid shooting into the lynch mob. Their foolish commanders sent them into the battle with paint ball rifles! Hamas and Hizbollah systematically fire missiles at Israeli civilian population centers from within their own civilian population centers. These same foolish soldiers and their government feel it is immoral to take out the missile launchers. Rather according to their skewed moral calculus, it is preferable that the missiles should murder innocent Jewish civilians. Rashi, the famous medieval Torah commentator, said that one who shows mercy to the cruel will be cruel to the innocent. Thus the same moral soldiers and their moral government have no qualms about destroying the homes of the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria for the sake of a fake peace that has left thousands of Jews murdered, maimed, widowed and orphaned.
