Islam purposefully kills women and children, so Israel is behaving rationally in walling itself off and building up its nuclear arsenal.
On Saturday, Palestinians launched a barrage of rockets against Israel from the territory which Israelis ceded to them 2 weeks ago. In retaliation, Israel struck back at the launch points and leadership.
The attack killed Islamic Jihad’s top commander in southern Gaza, Mohammed Khalil, and his bodyguard as they drove on a coastal road.
The army said Khalil was responsible for the deaths of 17 Israelis, including a shooting attack that killed a pregnant woman and her four young daughters as they drove near a Jewish settlement in May 2004.
This is the horror that Khalil orchestrated:
May 2, 2004. Mother, 4 daughters, killed in Gaza shooting attack
A pregnant mother and her four daughters were shot dead Sunday after two terrorists opened fire at Israeli cars traveling near the Kissufim Crossing at the entrance to the Gush Katif settlement bloc in the Gaza Strip.
The dead were identified as Tali Hatuel, 34, eight months pregnant and her daughters Hila, 11, Hadar, 9, Roni, 7, Merav, 2 all from the settlement of Katif.
Police said the white Citroen station wagon, carrying the family, spun off the road after the initial shooting, then the attackers approached the vehicle and shot the occupants at close range.
Israel cannot live with a people that perpetrates depravity.
