Juan Williams: Don't You Think Israel is Being a Little Harsh on Hamas?

I can't tell if Mr. Williams is suddenly a proponent of Just War theory, whereby proportionality of response must be considered when defending oneself, but he may be. It begs the question: when facing an interminable existential threat, as Israel does daily, how much is too much? Is coexistence possible, and if it is deemed not achievable, is not a disproportionate response necessary to eliminate the threat? Think of it this way...without Israel's overwhelming response and build-up of forces at the Gaza border, would we even be trying to broker a truce? Seems to me that Mr. Williams wants us to suspend away reason and accountability. Juan...bottom line: No overkill, no brokered cease fire by the US and Egypt.

Last night on Special Report, Fox News Political Analyst Juan Williams accused Israel of "overkill" in their efforts to eradicate Hamas and stop rocket (and road bomb) attacks on the Jewish State. Williams also said Egypt was an important mediator, although the country is ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood, a group sympathetic to Hamas.

"The question is overkill."
