After five Israelis were murdered by a suicide bomber in Netanya, Israel eliminated one senior terrorist and went after the rocket launch sites used by the terrorists to fire into Israel from Gaza.

It's too bad that Israel has to wait for Israelis to be killed before taking preemptive action against the known terrorist groups. It's not as though al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, Hamas, or Hizbullah are operating in secret. They run public demonstrations all the time and have public displays of their intentions that are carried in the Palestinian press. The Palestinian terrorists know that time is on their side, despite the fact that Israel continues to whack top level terrorists each time. The crushing coup de gras is not delivered, which gives the terrorists hope that they can outlast Israel's willingness to defend itself.
