Proportional Response

It’s taken quite a while, but the answer to last summer’s question on ‘how to wage politically correct warfare’ is emerging from Gaza.

Last June, as Palestinian Arabs abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, critics deplored Israel’s military response. And, as Hizballah rockets rained down on northern Israeli towns, much of the criticism of the Big Media was directed, interestingly enough, at Israel’s response.

Why? Well, according to the hand-wringers, the Israeli response was “disporportionate,” whatever the heck that means. So, what exactly is a “proportionate reponse?”

Hamas has sent Israel a list of Palestinian prisoners it wants released in return for the freedom of the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who has been held since last June, officials said yesterday. The Israeli government has insisted that Corporal Shalit’s release is a prerequisite to progress in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

The Palestinian list is believed to include Marwan Barghouti, a Fatah leader who was jailed by Israel for his role in the murder of four Israelis and a Greek monk – and around 500 other prisoners.

Five hundred to one. Now that the Palestinian Arabs, themselves, have provided the answer, perhaps the press will be willing to abide by the decision in the future.
