An Israeli anti-terrorism expert responding
to a question regarding recent events there
remarked that Britain must now go elephant hunting
rather than gardening.

What do you take that to mean?

Duh.  Hunt the bastids and their accomplices down, and worry less about prettying up everything, including making Africa look better (gardening).

Also, that remark is an allusion to the time honored tradition among the elite to go big game hunting, with high powered rifles, guided by locals.  In short, don't go hunting with peashooters (pea and straw, or any Derringer), but with the best and most powerful you have.  Granted, nukes are not included in that arsenal choice.  Otherwise, almost the entirety of the Middle East would be radioactive for many centuries.

Remember that, even though it was
shortly before it was confirmed, the comment would
have been made with the understanding that the attack
came from within England.  What does “elephant hunting”
instead of “gardening”  mean then, and would England
still be England in the difference?  Would the United States?

To garden means to pull the weeds and to elephant hunting means to go after the big guys. Funny they use elephants It must point out to africa.
