I've Been Thinking:
Israel's northernmost city, Kiryat Shmoneh was bombed by 6 katuysha rockets. Residents of the city spent two hours in their bomb shelters.
Pay careful attention to the Israeli response.
After an attack Israel will locate and hit the nerve centers and planning centers for the attack. They will search out the people responsible for the attack and they will try to destroy the infrastructure, the planners and the attack leaders.
Contrary to the popular misunderstanding of Spielberg's Munich - this is not about vengeance.
Israel counter attacks to make terrorists realize that there is a hefty price to pay for attacking Israel. Israel is not like other Western countries, willing to roll over and absorb attacks against them. Israel attacks as a disincentive.
