Retaliation #2000


Israeli aircraft blasted suspected Palestinian weapons facilities in Gaza on Sunday and authorities arrested hundreds of militants in the West Bank, launching an offensive against the Islamic group Hamas after it bombarded Israeli towns with rockets.

[Emphasis mine]

I understand that Israeli retaliation weakens the various Islamist terror groups. But why doesn't Israel fight for the long haul? The IDF smashes some of the terrorists and their infrastructure for a few days and then backs off which gives breathing room for other terrorists to re-group. A few months later, the IDF again smashes some of the terrorists and their infrastructure...Where's the long-term security in repeating this purely defensive policy?

It's often said that the Israelis use disproportionate force. I agree.

They use too little.
