Israeli warplanes continued to pound targets in the Gaza Strip on Monday as Israel's Defense Minister declared an "all out war" against the Islamic militant group Hamas and its Gaza government.

But some say the response has been disproportionate and may be an attempt by Israel to restore its image.
