Israel takes a leaf out of Sri Lanka’s book

I have always believed that the Sri Lankan government's war against the LTTE is fully justified. So is Israel's Gaza offensive, notwithstanding the horrible civilian suffering caused.

However, just as Sri Lanka stooped very low recently in the course of its just war, so has Israel. By  banning secular Arab nationalist parties like Balad, Israel seems to be repeating its earlier mistake of undermining the PLO/Fatah, which caused the rise of Hamas.
