Danon: How Many Have to Die for Us to Fight Back?

Deputy Knesset Speaker Danny Danon told Likud activists in southern Israel Sunday, "Gaza has declared war on the state of Israel and we are treating it with kid gloves. We should be reacting like any other nation would react to a declaration of war, aggressively and decisively, without any restraint."

Responding to the more than 100 rockets that have hit the area since Friday night, he continued, "On the eve of the Yom Kippur War, when we took world opinion into consideration and didn't attack full force, it cost us thousands of lives. How many Israelis have to die this time for us to return the war to the side which is attacking in order to kill us? No Israeli blood is worth considering the global atmosphere toward Israel."
