In response to the barrage of rocket and mortar fire from Gaza, what did the Israeli government do? It did not bomb Hamas’ voters or even its administrative buildings. It did not cut power and water supply to the enemy’s territory.
Instead, Israelis still aflicted with their exile mentality concentrated on protecting their ghetto. The PM promised tough measures, and the defense minister ordered the deployment of Iron Dome batteries. Just as in Eastern Europe a century ago, Jews buried their heads in the sand and accepted enemy attack as inevitable.
