It cannot afford to lose sight of its moral obligation to fully respond to a threat with whatever violence is necessary and just. That doesn't mean the IDF should refrain from ripping new and interesting orifices into the members of Hamas and Hezbollah, just that it put bowel-loosening terror and a storm of bullets into the hearts of evil men in a civil manner. It has done so in the past, and cannot afford to act differently in the future. It is difficult being an example to the world of a just people, but if Israel is to survive it must hold itself to the higher standard expected of a nation of priests who just happen to be ready and willing to rain deserved death on evil men."
