    I would like to hear from Mr Holmes what the "right to protect its citizens" is made off. I believe that whatever Israel would/could/imagine/plan/do, he will always say that it is not allowed for humanitarian reasons. War is not nice it is ugly but he wants the price being payed only by Sderot residents. No responsibility for the Gaza government. This way of thinking is not constructive, it will perpetuate war. Qassams shooting is Hamas's responsability, and as long as they don't fight, I don't believe the situation of Gaza's civilian will improve.
