Israel overreacts

The Spokesman-Review

Israel has some of the most deadly weapons on the planet in its arsenal, which they use on a regular basis to slaughter Palestinians.

Imagine the headline if a man armed with a slingshot launched a stone at a bully and missed, then the bully retaliated by opening fire with an automatic machine gun, ripping the other to shreds. The Palestinians launch mortars and homemade rockets into Israel. No one is trying to deny that, but not a single Israeli citizen has been killed for years by these attacks. On the other hand, several hundred Palestinians have been slaughtered by hellfire missiles, machine gun fire and an illegal blockade of Gaza.
