Hamas fires numerous missiles at civilians in Israel. After a while, Israel responds to the attacks. Why does this Nation editorial call the Israeli response a “crime”? The disparity in casualty numbers is not a sign of Hamas’s humanity: They are quite eager to butcher any and all Jews, but their masters in Iran and in other oil-rich Arab tribes provide them with lousy weapons. The crime in this conflict is committed by those who spare no expense (and the blood of innocent bstanders) to keep alive the miasma of eliminating Israel.
