Israel’s indiscriminate bombing hurts all
August 2nd, 2014

I don’t have to tell you that the carnage in Gaza has gotten from bad to worse. The loss of life and the destruction of property is completely asymmetric. The death toll in Gaza is north of 1,665. Most of the dead are civilians. The Israeli death toll is under 70. Most of the dead are soldiers. Less than 10 are civilians.

The argument has been made that rockets shot by the terrorist organization Hamas are enough justifications. Then, the tunnels are also justification as terrorists use them to come into Israel to kill Jews. Yet the death toll numbers are probative.

Israel has the Iron Dome that has been quite successful in protecting its cities. Does that not buy Israel time to be more surgical and methodical in its actions to find tunnels used for weapons and terrorism. Does it not mean innocent Palestinian lives could be spared?

Israel’s actions will harden those that would have been the ones that could be negotiated with in the future. They are creating tomorrows terrorists in this non-ending conflict.

What are your thoughts?
