Protesters and activists are provocateurs, that's what they do. I don't believe the measured response is to deploy Commandos storming down ropes out of helicopters.
Israel over reacted is my first take on this just as they over reacted with their barrage on Gaza over a year ago and their counter attack into Lebanon over three years ago.
Israel needs to learn the restraint that comes with having a powerful military. It's a maturity their country hasn't learned yet.
It's part of being a responsible Democracy.
