Israeli forces are in Gaza again. If making Gazans' lives a living hell will convince Corporal Gilad Shalit's captors to give him back to Israel alive and well, then it is the right thing to do. The problem is that it only makes the Palestinians angrier and more steadfast in their unreasonable demands. However, going into Gaza to stop the Kassam rockets was long overdue. The F-16's over Syrian President Bashar Assad's head was pure foolishness. The only good move Israel has done has been the arrest of Hamas leaders on terrorism charges. That's even greater pressure than taking out Gaza's electricity (and if it doesn't get the soldier back - they're in prison, which is good in itself).
