The Israelis are too soft...

Over 50 rockets were fired from Gaza into Sderot over the weekend.
On Sunday, Sderot Mayor Eli Moyal drove to Jerusalem to personally deliver this message to Ra'anan Dinur, the director-general of the Prime Minister's Office: If the IDF does not destroy the northern Gaza neighborhood of Beit Hanun, Sderot will become a ghost town.

Upset by the unprecedented number of Kassam rockets fired at his city over the weekend - Palestinians launched more than 50 from Beit Hanun - a restless Moyal told Dinur, "You have to choose" between Beit Hanun and Sderot.

"If you do not destroy Beit Hanun, Sderot will become a ghost town. The people of this city cannot suffer any more Kassam attacks," he told Dinur and The Jerusalem Post. "It's impossible to live here now."

Then, as if to prove his point, even more Kassams slammed into Sderot. One resident was seriously wounded and three others were lightly wounded by two of at least 26 rockets fired on Sunday alone.

Israel should level everything within twenty miles of the rocket launch sites with artillery.

It's sad when we come to believe that the only way to save one city is to destroy another. But more than just sad, I think it is incorrect. I don't think it has ever been the case, and I don't think it is the case now. I am tempted to call this racism, but that would be too simplistic. But it is certainly ethnic cleansing to eliminate one group of people under the premise of saving another.

The question you have to ask yourself is this: Do you think that all the people in Beit Hanun would like to kill people in Sderot?

Most likely you do not. And if you do not, then how many people would you be saving in comparison to how many people you are killing? Is it justifiable, for example, to kill 2 in order to save 1? How many Palistineans is an Israeli worth to you?

The survival of the human race depends on our belief that there must be a better way to end conflict.
