The Real Reason for the Gaza Attacks-- Israel Wants to Spark More Islamic Terrorism

Atta's supposed righteous anger, if true, may well HAVE led to him ultimately becoming a martyr...but the circumstances of how he lost his life here on Earth certainly do not
include piloting AA11 into WTC1.

Professor Cole, I was glad to see you acknowledge that Hamas "also acted provocatively without regard to the wider consequences." However, I have searched your piece in vain for any suggestion about how Israel SHOULD have responded to Hamas's repeated Qassam rocket attacks from Gaza."

I have a suggestion: Israel SHOULD have responded with equal firepower by lobbing over some cherry bombs or TNTs (if those kinds of fireworks are still being made and called by those names).

although-- if you read the Cole article, it's clear that Israel not only WANTS to provoke the Palestinians, but that every time there was some hostility that broke a cease-fire, it was Israel breaking peace first.

I read most of Cole's article. I was simply responding to the blogger who asked a rhetorical question...which is obviously based on either ignorance of how the Israeli government operates or else he was asking a question knowing that his premise is false.

My response was based on my belief that the questioner knowingly asked a question based on a false
premise. That's why I couched my suggestion in a somewhat sarcastic tone.
