I believe in Israels right to defend itself against an overwhelming threat. The mere fact that terrorists don't listen to their brothers is not an excuse for taking such an excessive step. Israel is always held up to intense scrutiny by the entire world. We as Jews were the victims and now we are seen by some, by many as the victimizers. Unfortunately people don't examine or take all the facts into account. They seldom do were Jews are concerned. We just have to flick a fly off our shoulder and we are equal to murderers in peoples minds. However, that is the reality of the world. Therefore we need to use different tactics to combat terrorism, tactics that would be perceived as a more balanced approach. Easy to say, harder to do. But it can be done.
