Yes, what Hamas did is reprehensible. Yes, the Israelis have the right to defend their borders.
However, the conflict has gone far, far beyond that now to the point of gratuitous violence. It is no longer about defeating Hamas, but about revenge and bringing Palestine back under Israeli control. It is about frightening Palestinians into obedience and bringing them back into line.
Far too many civilians have been killed and if Israel aren’t careful there won’t BE any of them left to rule over.
