    actually hands out death sentences.  Europeans tend to shy away from such.  Thus, if Hamas were tried for war crimes, they wouldn't actually face death, as they do at the hands of the IDF.  Therefore, I can hardly think you can say the IDF is showing any sort of restraint, when they're killing people the courts would merely put in prison.

    If the IDF were capturing them and handing them over to the ICC, then you could make the case that they were showing restraint, I suppose.

    •  So how are they going to arrest them (0+ / 0-)

      except by the invasion? They aren't going to come out and report to the nearest courthouse.

      •  Well, here in the US, we have what we call (0+ / 0-)

        'police' and 'swat teams' who go in and arrest people, even very violent people armed with bombs and automatic weapons, without the use of airstrikes.

        I know it's a difficult concept, but think on it a while.
