Collective punishment is a war crime, forbidden by the Geneva conventions. Israel's prime minister seems to have taken it one step further--to comprehensive punishment.
Olmert told his cabinet he had instructed the military "to intensify the force and activity of the IDF and the security elements in order to pursue these terrorists, those who send them, their ideologues and those who harbor them."

"No one will go unpunished," he said.
One would have thought that Israel couldn't possibly have found a leader more callous and brutal than Ariel Sharon. One would have thought there couldn't possibly be a worse attorney general than John Ashcroft. One is sometimes wrong.

"No one will go unpunished." That's really what the whole "war on terror" nonsense is about, isn't it?
