MICHAEL TOTTEN: What would a “proportionate” response look like? “The Israel Defense Forces might have launched thousands of air strikes against targets in Gaza to match the thousands of Qassam rockets fired at the cities of Sderot and Ashkelon. It’s unlikely, however, that this is what Israel’s critics have in mind.”

UPDATE: Alan Dershowitz on “moral idiocy” that encourages terrorists.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Fred Lapides writes: “It is WWII. The Americans are about to launch an atom bomb to try to end the war that is killing so many. The voices of compassion say: no atom bomb because it is not proportionate. You must wait till they get their own super weapon.”

No, thank you.
