Gotta love Rex Murphy.
Read the whole thing.
"Israel, embattled from its birth, facing an implacable enemy (Hamas
wants Israel eliminated from tip to toe), surrounded by terrorists who
deplore its very existence, is asked to be subtle, to be precise, to hit
the terrorists firing missiles from the vestibule of the mosque rather
than the congregants who sit huddled 10 feet away."
"Which should expose the so-called doctrine of proportionality for
what it is: a specious, meretricious conceit designed to tie the hands
of armies that strike back against agressors — and, in particular, one
army: Israel’s. With this one word, Zionism’s enemies seek to twist its
legitimate self-defense into a war crime."
