The rest of the world has logged it as yet another example of Israel thinking it can solve all its problems by violence alone. "former Israel Defense Forces chief of staff Dan Halutz said that such actions attributed to Israel "deter terror organizations." Classic denial. Israel has regularly assassinated members of Hamas, Fatah etc. ALL their operatives already know there's the possibility of being killed by Israel. This makes very little difference, but coming on top of Cast Lead, it has done a lot of damage to Israel's reputation. Israel's western friends now get the impression Israel is happy to screw them over all for the chance to carry out a pointless assassination that achieved nothing long term.
