Disproportionate response

I find the cries of "disproportionate response" to Israel's military action against Palestinian terrorists to be absurd (your report, 3 March). One can only presume that if the Israelis sent a suicide bomber onto a Palestinian bus or suchlike in reaction to a Palestinian suicide bomber, the response would be unrelenting praise for the "proportionate response".
