#2 This will continue until Israel makes clear (and
is allowed to make well clear) that every Isreali dead will trigger ten deaths between the Palestinians.

I don't know where is Anesty International but
I can tell you where is the BBC: preparing the second part of the report they broadcasted two days ago about the trauma suffered by Palestinian children.

#9 Via LGF:

UPDATE: The murderer was a woman.

The bomber was later identified as woman, who security sources said was a member of Islamic Jihad from the West Bank city of Jenin. She apparently entered Israel between the towns of Baka al-Garbiyeh, which is inside Israel, and Baka al-Sharkiyeh, in the West Bank, in an area in which the separation fence has not yet been completed.
UPDATE: Palestinian spokesliar Saeb Erekat has appealed to “the international community” to make sure that Israel does not defend her citizens against the Palestinian savages:

The chief Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, said he appealed to international mediators to ensure that Israel does not retaliate. "We don't want Israel to add fuel to the fire," he said.

#10 I know that I have brought this item up before, but with the US/Israeli population of 47:1, 400 Israelis dying is the equivalent of almost 17,000 US citizens dying from suicide bombings. This would be outrageous and unacceptable to us. It is certainly outrageous and unacceptable to the Israelis.

Arafat wants to corner all the perks and graft and run the show, that's fine. When he owns it, he is responsible. If he does not own it, then he is not responsible and he better stay out of the way. He cannot have it both ways.

The Israeli government better take responsibility for its citizens and bring down the hammer on the terrorists, starting with Arafat. Otherwise it is condoning murder on the installment plan. It is truly heartbreaking. Ball is in your court, Israel.

#11 Israel needs to up the cost to the Paleolithic stoneheads by destroying whole VILLAGES, instead of a single house. Force the people out, force them to the nearest border with another Arab country, and force them across, then totally devastate the village they left, so there's nothing they can come back to. It can't make things worse for Israel than they are right now, and can actually force SOME people to acknowledge the PALEOS are the problem.

#12 JFM_ re: your 10:1 suggestion. I believe Heydreich (spelling?) used a similar formula in Czechosovakia in WWII, with spectacularly unhelpful results. Use a scalpel,JFM, not a hammer. Everytime, this crap happens, take out the top man and maybe one or two of his buddies.
Don't fall into the trap of terror for terror.

#13 nice - the female boomer was a Paleo lawyer trained in Jordan, who committed the bombing to avenge the IDF killing of her brother and fiance (who was also her cousin)....Paleo society fever - catch it

#14 Mercutio

The ten to one rule was also used in France. It is not specific to Heydrich: if my memory is any good it was allowed by Geneva convention for occupation forces harassed not by classic guerillas (who disappear in the wilderness) but by people who mix in the population.

But I agree it is not a good idea, despite thinking that the Palis are doing a cold demographic calculation: killing irreplaceable
Israeli women and children does more harm to Isreal than the losses in men (expendable in
a poligamic society) experienced by Palestinians.

A better solution would be akin to the one proposed by old Patriot: each time there is a bombing, N square kilometers of the Palestinian
zone are incorporated permanently into Israel and their inhabitants cast out.

#15 JFM _ OK, a bit of a re-evaluation on my part, here after just reading in today's MEMRI posts, that 55% of Palestinians favor the continuation of suicide attacks on Israel.... go with a numeric tit-for-tat, just make sure it's the right 55%.

#16 More from MEMRI -

DR. NABIL SHA'ATH, MINISTER OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS FOR THE OUTGOING PA GOVERNMENT SAID THAT DISMANTLING THE INFRASTRUCTURE OF ARMED PALESTINIAN ORGANIZATIONS AS CALLED FOR IN THE ROAD MAP IS A PROBLEM AND AN ALTERNATIVE MUST BE FOUND. (AL-QUDS, PA, 10/3/03)

Funny, I don't see a problem at all; it just depends on how you define dismantling. If they can't, we will... and all the king's horses, and all the king's men......
