Such is the cycle of violence and revenge. I can understand why Israel would want to retaliate against Hamas, some days there are over a hundred rockets being launched into their country. Does it need to be so heavy handed? I guess at some point you have to say enough is enough.
Personally I think Hamas has the greatest ability to end this conflict if they can police the amount of rockets being sent over into Israel, but history has shown they have no such desire to do such a thing given their use of guerilla tactics. Sadly it is always the civilian population that takes the brunt of the violence, which just further escalates and perpetuates it. And round and round they go.
