Gaza mortar shells target Israeli forces searching for Hamas tunnels; Israel responds with airstrike, tank fire and declares border area a closed military zone; Hamas evacuates two schools as a precautionary measure.21:44 04.05.16 | 4 comments
there will be no political solution. There can be as easing of the modus vivendi perhaps, but the Geneva Accords and Oslo died with Intifada II and were buried with Hamas seizure of Gaza. The Palastinain embrace of a narrative that contains no legitimacy for a Jewish State, no responsibilty for the present situation, and which excuses the murder of Jewish citizens is simply inconsistent with a Palastinian state living in peace with a neighboring Jewish state. What the past 20 years have proved is that as long as the Jews and Palastinians are sharing Mandatory Palastine, no political solution can be implemented more quickly than the attitudes of people can be changed, and the attitudes of people are about as far from peace as they have ever been.
