Israel doesn't have to destroy their homes because they are within reach of the Israeli justice system. If guilty, they will face life imprisonment. Palestinian terrorists, often, cannot be located to face justice. israel must do what is necessary to protect her civiians, and that includes deterrence that flows from the knowledge that an act of terror can deprive their families of their homes. Its tremendously unfortunate but a function of a failure of cooperation. Without extradition , deterrence is an essential tool against terrorism. Clearly deterrence is less than 100% effective but if it deters one terrorist and saves one life, its warranted. Life trumps homes.
