    So has "get tough" ever worked before? Yes, you killed Ahmed Jabari, as you killed Salah Shehadeh ten years ago, and as you killed some other people during the First Intifada, and then decades before that. There will always be another Palestinian firing missiles into Israel until Palestinian have a free and independent state where they can pursue their lives in dignity, without being humiliated by the occupation. Bombing out the symptoms of the conflict will not address the roots of the problem. The violence just perpetuates itself. How difficult is that to understand? You think you will bomb Gaza now and will not have the same situation in a few years? 2009 Gaza War did not prevent this from happening, did it? And by the way, it's easy for you to advocate for more violence while sitting in Westfield, New Jersey. Try moving to Sderot or Khan Younis for a change, see if you still want to "get tough", while the opposite side "gets tough" with you.
