"Going after the terrorists" clearly doesn't stop suicide bombers. Just as retaliation against the Israelis doesn't do anything to stop the counter-retaliation.

When you're stuck in a hole, stop digging. That applies both ways, but in the case of Israel, it's the government itself which is doing the digging, and in the case of the Palestinians, it's the opposition, so Israel is in a much better position to stop digging. Except if it wasn't for this reciprocal war of terror they wouldn't be the government...
