In his Dec. 30 article, Muqtedar Khan makes the case that Israel's response to Hamas' attacks is unjustified and is a terrorist act.
He states that, "Hamas shot a few rockets into Israel," as though this is a casual act. Earlier in his article he notes that "Hamas fired over 100 rockets into Israel without killing anyone. ..."
I wonder if Mr. Kahn, in fact, thinks that attacking a sovereign nation with 100 rockets is indeed a negligible action. I also wonder if he believes it was not the intention of Hamas to kill anyone. This is the same Hamas that encouraged innumerable suicide-bombing missions to murder innocent citizens.
If a foreign nation fired over 100 rockets into the sovereign territory of the United States, would our nation pass it off as a mere annoyance? Would Mr. Kahn have us simply ignore it since no one was killed?
One cannot expect Israel to sit by passively any more than one would expect our country to do so.
