shooting rockets into civilian areas is the height of terrorism. Yes, the Isrealis strike back but they don't direct their strikes at civilians, even though civilians are often victims. Responsibility for that lies in the hands of Hamas who may well be desirous of civilian deaths. Any state that does not respond to rocket fire at their civilians is failing in its most fundamental responsibility. Hamas knows that. So too does the world but much of that world has no problem when it is Jewish lives that are at stake. All the more reason for Israel to engage in aggressive self defence.
