    " It would be as if the media described lawful police efforts to stop illegal drug-related murders as a “cycle of violence.” Indeed, what would you say if the police attacked a street corner where drug dealers hung out with helicopters and bombers from the air, then sent tanks to fire at the corner until it was rubble? I would hope you still have enough respect for civil liberties and human rights to protest that in the U.S. It seems you have trouble according Palestinians that same privilege. The truth is that your analogy to drug dealers really betrays how you see the Palestinians. Rocketing Israeli civilians may be abhorrent, but if we're keeping score, Israel is way ahead on the killing of innocent civilians.
