Israel's Recent Gaza Attack

Israel's recent actions into the Gaza strip show that their "pullout" from the area means nothing, as they re-invade the Palestinian territories as they see fit. As Israel's military operations in Gaza are said to be in response to the kidnapping of an Israeli soldier by terrorists, the military's actions are instead resulting in collectivized terror against an innocent Palestinian population. While the actions of Palestinian terrorists cannot be justified, in turn, Israeli military responses against civilian populations also cannot be excused. As a recent New York Times article reports:

Mr. Olmert, whose air force has already bombed Gaza's bridges, crippled its only power plant, shelled the Palestinian prime minister's office here and subjected all 1.4 million Gaza residents to night after night of sleep-depriving sonic booms, said he had ordered the military and government "to do everything in order to bring Gilad back home."

These actions, represent a blatant disregard for human rights, which everyone should be concerned about. Please post comments below, as disagreements are welcome.
