Regarding "Israel hits Hamas, killing 7 militants", IHT, July 17, 2005: The only serious problem that I have with Israel's latest strikes against terrorists is that there is always a real chance that innocent people could get hurt, something that should be avoided at all costs. This time, according to media reports only known and wanted terrorists were killed and wounded on the Palestinian side, and few Israelis will shed a tear over these men's deaths and injuries. Not that I admire every aspect of Ariel Sharon's policies, but - as far as the disengagement plan's implementation and Palestinian terror aimed at stopping that are concerned - he seems to be on the right track: fighting terror as if there is no disengagement plan and implementing the plan as if there is no terror.
