Ben, those are good points you make. We need to let their entire society know that it will suffer for the sins of the terrorists, and that silent acceptance and support of terror carries the same price tag as engaging in blatant acts of terrorism...death by the forces of freedom.

The Palestinians have trumped the clueless leaders running Israel, because they've found that the tactic of using human shields works. Israel recently tried to target a known terrorist leader's house. In their infinite stupidity and lack of understanding of how to run a war, the Israelis actually call the terrorist on the phone ahead of time to warn him that they're about to bomb his home. Clearly, this is an idiotic tactic. So the Palestinians simply use the warning time to gather a hundred Palestinian terror supporters on the roof, and Israel calls off the strike.

If the people running things in Israel had any active brain cells left, they'd announce that human shields are considered enemy combatants, and let them gather, then bomb them all. They would use this strategy until the Palestinians stopped using the tactic. (Better to keep announcing attacks in order to attract terrorism supporters and make easier targets of them). Once the Palestinian terrorist supporters stop acting as human shields, the Israelis should simply stop announcing their strikes in advance and let the so-called collateral damage happen. To hell with them. The Palestinian people voted in a terrorist organization to run their society, so they all share in the results.
