Israel extended its reaction to Hamas’ violence by seizing the ”high ground” and using its “moral superiority” to further decimate the Palestinian people. The infiltration by Hamas militants into Israel has been resolved, not without Israeli deaths but with the Hamas militants eliminated. Israel learned it must be more vigilant and reinforce its border security. It has the capability to do that, will do that, and effectively subdue Hamas. The last death of a Hamas militant on Israeli soil should have arrested the violence in the present battle. Secret discussions on releasing the captured Israelis are the preferred first step for peacefully resolving a delicate and explosive situation. Soul searching and a reformulated strategy precede a desire to prove military superiority and exact impulsive revenge.
I hear you.

When good people on both sides come together and demand a better response, peace may be possible.
Brilliant read. Thank you.
