Now the Terrorists are Really Mad!
That appears to be the point of Robert Fisk's latest offering, appropriately titled "The Gloves are Off in Terror War"
No one has begun to work out the implications of all this. For years, there has been an unwritten rule in the cruel war of government-versus-guerrilla. You can kill the men on the street, the bomb-makers and gunmen, but the leadership was allowed to survive.
Now all has changed utterly. Anyone who advocates violence - even if they are palpably incapable of committing it - are now on a death list. So who can be surprised if the rules are broken by the other side?
The top guys are now in the firing line. Let us not say we didn't know.
Jeez, I didn't know Hamas was leaving Israel's leaders alone.
