Arne BS: suicide bomber murders 9 in Tel Aviv (192* d) RE: BS: suicide bomber murders 9 in Tel Aviv 17 Apr 06

"An eye for an eye, until everybody's blind...." -- Tommy Sands, "There Were Roses"

Israel used to have this operation of killing the terrorist leaders covertly; IIRC, they used a cell phone bomb to kill one (Hamas, IIRC) leader. Or, like the Eichmann nab, go get the guy and try him in court; maybe better yet as an appropriate solution.

Nowadays, they just send in a Hellfire, and who cares if there's any civilian casualties.

When both sides start saying that everyone's the same; that everyone's a target and this is just "war", then, voila!, everyone is a target down the line, and Tommy Sands's words start to ring true....

(Writing two days after Easter) we show our own humanity, I think, in how we treat even our "enemies".....
