Though I do dislike Netanyahu, and the response was disproportionate for Hamas having hit an empty Israeli field with a rocket first and then Israel bombing heavily. Israel is mourning Itamar and pissed off, but Hamas wasn't thinking and fires that rocket, and then Israel bombs heavy, and annoyed Hamas that Israel broke an unwritten agreement hits 50 rockets instead of discussing National Unity and not throwing rockets! I don't think something justifies what Israel did in Cast Lead, but Hamas is irresponsible.
