Zero Tolerance

I've long railed against the Israeli government and its ongoing failure to deal with the incessant rocket attacks by the Palestinian terrorists who operate in Gaza and then hide among the civilians living there or send kids to retrieve the rocket launchers in the cruel and purposeful attempt to lure Israelis into killing kids for propaganda purposes in the media war against Israel.

Well, today's major rocket attack against Israel must result in Israel taking action beyond threatening Hamas and the terrorists. Heck, the Sderot day care attack last week should have been the last straw, but it wasn't.

60+ Israelis
were injured in the latest barrage. The PRC claimed responsibility, but the PRC is another name for Hamas. The rockets were fired from Beit Hanoun.

If I were a betting man, I wouldn't put odds on a major military response, but then again, I wouldn't want to be buying real estate in Beit Hanoun either. Israel will likely take a limited response including airstrikes or artillery while minimizing ground forces.
