Because they can! Israel is always pressured by outsiders to exercise restraint. The time for restraint is long past. When a mosquito buzzes around your head, and you brush it away, and it comes back and buzzes around your head, you SMASH IT!
Israel knows that if they respond the way logic says they should, they'll have the whole geographical region united against them. They couldn't stand against that. They'd go down fighting, and take a lot with them, but they'd go down.
And the U.S. would stand by and watch, and preach restraint, and Obama would say "We should sit down and talk" and 'Reverend' Wright would say they had it coming, etc ad nauseum.
