    If you think of yourself as liberally minded European intellectuals, you should feel sympathy for people in Northern Israel just now (as you feel for civilians on the other side). If you keep looking for excuses, whether historical or current, to justify the lack of such sympathy for Israeli civilians, then look inside yourselves for the reasons other than objectivity... and your love for peace and justice. Israel is a sovereign country and if it is attacked it should respond. The response should be harsh and brutal, as harsh as brutal as possible, so that next time the terorrists will think twice before firing rockets at Israeili cities. As for the land, nobody questions land in Northern Israel, not Nahariya and not Safed. Who lived where in the 30s, 40s and 50s has nothing to do with current reality. Kennigsberg(Kaliningdard), for example, was a Prussian City. So what?
