Israeli FM: Restraint is Over

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni seems to have thrown down the gauntlet against Hamas. The days of "Hamas firing rockets and Israel showing restraint are over."

It's taken a few years for Israel to realize that showing restraint gets them neither security nor goodwill among Arab nations or the rest of the world. They might as well fight back and at least improve their security situation.
