If At First You Don’t Succeed; Bang Them Harder (IDF Elevates Efforts @ Hamas)

Ed Koch, via Yonkers Tribune, has penned a fabulous piece:

Opponents and enemies of Israel are in full hue and cry over Israel’s attack on the terrorist organization Hamas and its government and military installations in Gaza. The main criticism is that the Israeli response to the rocketing of southern Israel is “disproportionate.” There is little, if any, dispute that Israel’s goal of ending all rocket attacks on Israel and its civilian population, is reasonable and indeed sanctioned by international law.

It seems to me that if the goal is reasonable, then the only issue is whether the force applied to achieve that goal is reasonable. In my view, the fact that seven days of continuous bombing of Gaza by the Israeli air force did not accomplish the goal demonstrates that the amount of force used by Israel has been less than needed. Hamas could have stopped its rocket attacks but chose not to. So now Israel’s ground attack has begun with greater force.
