    Excellent point - straight from the source. So how come the jews of israel, having had the (mostly) benefit of their own cherished sources, are so determined to ignore the teachings? not to even mention later day interpretations, that surely would not have condoned collective punishment by a mile. The would be "solution" of the good Rabbi leaves a few questions too. After all, Gilgul comes with large uncertainties, leaving potentially still too many innocents thrown to the wolves along with the "guily" ones. But none of this is so scary as to realize - from just reading here and hearing not a few say similar things in Israel - that should the Israelis come up with a weapon so clever as to make all Gazans disappear over night (leaving no bodies for human rights groups) many Jews would actually use it. I.e., it's not a sense of morality that's stopping far more grievous destruction from being brought to bear upon Gaza, but fear of consequences. The only question is how many such Jews?
