Levy reminds us there's still Gaza

Here is a very good article on how misguided the Israeli response to Hamas and Hizbollah is. It's from Gideon Levy in Haaretz.

Levy says:

The painful steps taken in Gaza, which included dropping a one-ton bomb on a residential building, or killing an entire family of seven children under cover of darkness in Lebanon, killing dozens of residents, bombing an airport, cutting off electricity and water to hundreds of thousands of people for months were a response lacking any justification, legitimacy or proportion. What goal did it
serve? Was the soldier released? Did the Qassams stop? Was deterrence restored? None of that happened. Only lost honor was supposedly restored, and immediately the next evil wind showed up, this time from the north.

Interesting thoughts. It's a wonder more Israelis don't get it.
