    I do not believe that Hamas can stop all attacks on Israel (nor do I believe they want to, how can they come down hard on their people, but not protect them from ISraeli incursions?). They can however, observe their own peace treaties with Israel, as they had previously done for the 16 months before these new tensions. No state that lacks a security infrastructure can be expected to contain those who wish to commit violence against those who they beleive are occupying their lands. Yet, if the world sends military aid to Pals, they will use it against ISrael, so what to do? Permanent occupation, I hope you agree, is not only morally wrong, but prevents progress on both sides, and obviously the lack of economic opportunities and a semblance of normal life radicalizes anyone. Societies are of course unstable when facing a 60% unemplyment rate. Perhaps a bilateral withdrawal and multinational border forces could help? Your thoughts?
