In the early days of Israel, when the country had real leaders, it was a basic principle that the killing of Jews would not be tolerated. Olmert and Peretz subscribe to proportionate response, i.e. you can kill Jews if you are willing to pay a modest price. The Palestinian public is not innocent. They can stop the kassams and the need for an Israeli response just by informing the IDF in time to stop the missile launchings. Moreover, with Hamas now officially actively at war with Israel, Fatah could help themselves and their people by providing intelligence to the IDF.
