    Israel wouldn't be hitting it if there wasn't a reason to do so.

    It's not like this isn't a known tactic.

    The Iraqi insurgents use the exclusion zones for this purpose regularly.

    This is why I dislike the exclusion zones.

    At the very least, you are fun to debate against.

    No problem.

    Its a complex issue with Hamas as part of the reason they are in power lies within the conflict but i would with the help of the more moderate Arab countries try and remove the reasons Hamas is in power to begin with and get Egypt to patrol their borders more. I would not have used collective punishment for Hamas throwing rockets. Force and violence as much as it sounds good, will not do anything to help formulate a long term agreement

    If Israel truley wished to stop Hamas firing rockets, instead of going after Hamas they should have attacked Iran - the purse behind the rockets [Not that i advocate attacking Iran]

    Suicide bombing military targets is not something that I think is inherently wrong. However, when engaging military targets international law dictates that one must be in uniform. Hiding among civilians violates the Geneva Convention and, as Hamas is realizing, puts civilians in extreme danger. Hamas takes every opportunity to embrace cowardice and has no qualms violating international law or any peace agreements that the infinitely more powerful Israel offers it.

    What other Arab countries will side with a quest to remove the Hamas or attacking Iran?

    I do not know. Please point me in the direction of some articles about that particular issue.

    You're not allowed to bomb any places of worship unless they are being used in a military manner thus removing them from a "No target" list.
