Was Israel's response "measured" against protesters in the Syrian Golan Heights?

    That is a false question. The interviewer got it right. This is not Israeli territory. This is illegally occupied territory. Israel was not trying to keep protesters out of its country.

    They were warned. Personally I think they should announce a no tolerance policy set up Machine Guns and simply gun down anyone stupid enough to ignore the warnings.

    Last I checked when a Country wins territory in a war they can keep it. Perhaps Syria should not have repeatedly attacked Israel?

    You can think that for all you want but you or even the US does not rule the world.

    Under International Law it is illegally occupied. You may like war, tough. Your interest in machine gunning down unarmed civilians is certainly the psychology of a lot of people who post here - basically the psychology of mass murderers. Even if it is the psychology of your whole country it will be to no avail because it is not the psychology of the whole world and allowing people to go by the gun and ignore international law is coming to an end. Chew on that as you sit in jail for murder.

    So what were the Israelis supposed to do? put down their weapons and stand aside as they stormed into Israel? I wonder what the Syrians would do if Israeli protestors stormed their borders?

    "measured" or "proportional" response is a disingenuous/fallacious charge used to allow/make sure a war of attrition CONTINUES.. and abused as justification for those wishing to wage asymmetric warfare while confining stronger opponents only to their strength.
