In Syria there is proof that the eyes of young children are being gouged out by rebels while Assad drops barrel barrel bombs on his own people. This kind of butchery is not restricted to Syria but is endemic throughout the region and beyond, Somalia, Sudan, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan to name but a few. Israel' policy for survival has always been, if you kill one we will kill ten. Everyone knows this but still they continue. Can you imagine if Israel did nothing? It has been tried and the terrorists , seeing weakness multiplied their attacks. I agree that it looks bad, but this policy has proved productive in that, Israel is still there.
