The rubble, make it bounce higher!

Because clearly years of overwhelming firepower have done the trick...if the trick is to keep escalating to exercise your overwhelming firepower.
Binyamin Netanyahu has instructed the Israeli military to "intensify even further" its assault on the Gaza Strip... The air assault continued throughout Wednesday morning bringing the Palestinian death toll to 32 in two days, including several senior Hamas and Islamic Jihad militants. More than 150 people have been injured. There have been about 440 air strikes since the beginning of the week.
And I'm sure it has worked and sure I am overstating whether the retaliation is disproportional?

Well, no and no.
One hundred and sixty-five rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel in the past 24 hours, according to Israeli military estimates.There have been no reports of deaths from the rocket attacks.
To be continued...apparently indefinitely...and profitably for a few.

Israel treats the Palestinians like we treated the Native Americans. Invade their territories and then just keep squeezing them into a tighter ring until they give up. Ain't progress great?

in psychology they call this transference. when the bullied becomes the bully.

This will, unfortunately, go on as long as the U.S. continues to enable Israel's bad behavior and as long as the U.S. continues the kabuki that it is an "honest broker" in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks (which have long since gone from tragedy to farce).

The rest of the world pretty much conceives of Israel as a pariah state, and it is only U.S. support that allows Israel to maintain the fiction that it is a besieged democracy. I suppose I don't see that changing for some time yet.

What does the Israeli government hope to accomplish?
I guess that every few years they have to throw some small constituency up against a wall to show them they mean business.

It sounds familiar.
