Israel should defend itself.
Yes, I'm an Obama supporter and a Democrat. And I thought Netanyahu's speech at the UN with his bomb picture and the red lines was a joke. I am completely against a preemptive strike on Iran in defense of Israel.
But as long as Israel isn't asking US to get involved, I think they're perfectly within their rights to target their attackers and kill every last one of them. I agree that the Palestinians provoke them, and are the aggressors. Obama should issue a statement saying, in effect, that if the Palestinians don't want to get themselves killed, they should stop firing rockets into Israel. That's a reasonable statement and a reasonable position to take.
