#1 The four-month-old road map peace plan sponsored by the international Quartet has been stymied by a relapse into tit-for-tat bloodshed in recent weeks with Washington preoccupied by turmoil in occupied Iraq and a looming election campaign at home.

Somehow, I fail to see the tit-for-tat aspect when Palestinian terrorists directly target Israeli civilians while Israel's actions are confined to known terrorists. As far as I remember, the definition of tit-for-tat is to respond in kind, and quite frankly the IDF doesn't appear to be trying to indiscriminately mow down scores of Palestinian civilians.
