While lethal, these most recent Israeli air attacks have mostly killed Hamas supporters, and relatively few Gaza civilians. If the outside world really cared about peace in the Middle East, it would put pressure on Hamas and those supporting terrorism or violence. That includes Iran, which verges on the rogue category.
Arab countries support Palestinians not because they like them, but because they dislike the idea of Israel more. In fact, a case can be made that none of Israel's neighbours wants a sovereign Palestinian state, which has no historical precedence.
Anyway, this Israeli attack is added evidence that Israel remains as staunch as ever, and will test U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's pledge that he supports Israel against terrorism.
