    There are real people involved here, and the cost borne by these Palestinian sisters should not be ignored just as the security of Rachel's family should not be discounted or discarded. Rachel, just like every other Israeli, deserve to live without the threat of murder from Palestinian militants. But, to achieve their security comes at a cost... as my old economics professor stated, there's no free lunch. An example in NYC was seen with the casualties of Amadu Diallo, and Abner Louima, as well as others. Yes, NYC's crime rate has fallen to levels not seen in decades, a wonderful thing for many people. But it did come at a cost. When gunning for the bad guys, one needs to remember that there are innocents around. It's a difficult thing to do in the middle of a war zone. But it shouldn't be ignored. The alternative is Grozny, Darfur, Hama, or the wanton butchering that's occuring in Iraq right now.
