Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.04:19 13.02.16 | 0 comments
let's say the state has been declared & the wonderful celebrations in jerusalem have followed, israel not daring to crush any of it. are you expecting hamas in gaza just to fold? or to automatically reconcile w/abbas & co, to submit to a system of one command & one weapon? the two pal. camps may start another round of their brotherly war, & how long do you reckon israel, facing a torn, pal. entity without having a formal peace agreement w/any of the two, will be able to sit on the sidelines before entering that fray again? even if a relative calm prevails, can israel live w/a situation where no peace agreement exists, the pals have a state, keep getting arms in from the outside & keep talking (as they do now) about a return of refugees into israel proper? recognized by the world & without the grip of the occupation the pals, indeed divided, will be even less inclined to sign on to a deal filling a minimum of israel's requirements. so the grip & the conflict will continue.
