Almost all of Israels reaction to attacks from Hamas or Hizbollah are in the nature of "collective punishment". Of course, this strategy does not work and brings much criticism of Israel, but it so so tempting!! It sounds as if it should work. Bomb the people, or cause them other suffering, which will cause them to turn upon their countrymen that attacked Israel. This strategy may work better if Israel did not use it so regularly and with such relish. For example: Last year, Hizbollah militants in south Lebanon attacked targets in Israel. The next day, Israel was bombing apartment blocks in Beruit, which continued regularly for almost a month. Now really... someone needs to connect the dots in this strategy. The people of Beruit, and of Lebanon in general, and the Lebanese armed forces did nothing to Israel during the whole war. Only the Hizbollah militants in the south attacked. Why were the Beruit attacks not directed at Hizbollah? These attacks did nothing for Israel.
