The entire population is totally traumatised 75% of which are women and children. Hamas & the IDF are both fascistic entities, one acting as the sacrificial lamb of Islam the other the righteous progeny of Zion. The map of Palestine looks like an anatomy of a autopsy the notion that two viable states could co-exist utter nonsense. In truth one must destroy the other or both must give way to a unified pluralist and secular state. But no-one wants this because the interests in the conflict run deep including showcasing the Iron Dome defense system. Research needs to be done on the procurement of all these weapons systems because I've no doubt the armaments dealers and procurers are all wise guys on the same side regardless of theocratic nonsense.
In a strict Biblical sense Islam and Judaism contesting the Holy Land is a akin to a fight among cadavers for control of the mortuary. Fatah are closer to the truth than either the IDF or Hamas. In reality Hamas have been a disaster for Gaza and Palestine but this is a civilian city we are talking about. The notion of waging war in it when the Israelis have such sophisticated weapons systems at their disposal is totally unjustifiable; the ambition to remove Hamas reasonable but how? The truth is there is no way of normalising politics outside of a comprehensive settlement but the Israelis don't want this because this would leave the emerging state split 50:50 between Arabs and Jews. A solution as far as the world is concerned but not where either Hamas or Zionists are concerned. And most Israelis, even radical peaceniks, are zionists (though lowercase) advocating the twin state solution. The truth is there is very little anyone can do except pray for an end to the delusion which is sustaining the conflict.
