My own favorite media quote on the Gaza War :(

From this post on Aussie Dave's Israellycool:

Canadian pundit George Jonas (hat tip: John):

" . . . Israel’s “right to defend itself,” to which its Western critics are careful to pay lip service, hinges on Israel never actually doing so. The Jewish state is entitled to armed self-defence; it just cannot shed any blood. If it does, gotcha! . . . "

Re the allegedly disproportionate response by Israel, see here and here.

isn't that the deal with the "pound of flesh" in The Merchant of Venice?

Yep, that's the drama on which George Jonas based this thought. I recommend that you click on my "this post" link and then on Aussie Dave's link to the George Jones article itself and read the whole thing.
