The number of innocent Israeli victims was many times fewer than the number of innocent Palestinian victims; that suggests the the IDF's response was not measured and that it allowed innocent civilians to be targeted as a "lesson" to Hamas. Numerous "Talkbacks" from Israeli have suggested that the overkill was reasonable and justified. Collective punishment, however, whenever, and by whom so-ever practiced is an unforgivable crime. Jews have been tortured and murdered for centuries only because they were Jews. Should we allow innocent Palestinian civilians to be murdered only because they are Palestinians in the wrong place at the wrong time? You may preach your sermon to the already convinced, but by the rest of us your persona is identified by your actions.
