ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Memo to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: Given the fact that Hamas’ top priority is the destruction of Israel and its citizens, the fact that it kidnapped and killed three innocent teenage boys, is indiscriminately firing rockets into densely populated cities and has steadfastly refused to negotiate a lasting peace deal, you have more than enough reason to continue your military response — and once and for all annihilate the cancer called Hamas that threatens to engulf the entire Middle East.

In other words, Mr. Prime Minister, finish the job.
