Without me apportioning blame in Northern Ireland, the IRA set off many bombs that killed many more people than the Gazan rockets did in Sderot. At no time did Britain respond with massive aerial and ground bombing of Ireland that would indiscriminately kill civilians; women and children included. It wouldn't even have occurred to them that to do so would be a proportionate, appropriate or effective response. The two countries and peoples are now close friends and allies, despite any lingering tensions among small minorities.
