My father just told me about this song by Peter Himmelman, “Maximum Restraint.” Himmelman, in addition to being a singer-songwriter in his own right is also Bob Dylan’s son-in-law.

In the song, Himmelman mocks calls for Israel to exercise “maximum restraint” in response to rocket attacks.

How do you fight an enemy that is willing—nay, eager—to force you to kill its children even if you don’t want to?

That’s the situation Israel faces against Hamas. It’s the situation we face against Islamist terrorists, too, because they use such techniques as one of their primary tools, and the...
