I've heard it and read, even here, that the Israelis were looking for an excuse to bomb Gaza, and, at first, I rejected that notion, but then realized that the IDF was indeed probably quite anxious to get into Gaza and destroy the myriad of tunnels Hamas had built with the intention of causing terror in Israel. The murder of the three Jewish boys and the incessant pounding of rockets from Gaza was all the excuse they needed.
I suggest you get a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy this brilliantly presented, completely unbiased report. While reading it you might want to compare the long-term reactions of the parents of the murdered children.
