Careful reading would show you that I was illustrating a glaring DIFFERENCE between Hamas and the IDF; not an excuse, nor an explanation. It's not so difficult to wrap your head around that salient point -- unless you're incapable or otherwise refuse to do so. Just remind yourself of the declared purpose of the IDF -- to defend the citizens of Israel -- and that of Hamas -- to "liberate" the lands by ethnically cleansing all Jews. It's easy to see that were Palestinian violence to stop, the IDF would not be there to trouble them or take any interest in their internal affairs; on the other hand, were the IDF to stop fighting the Palestinians, Hamas would continue to attempt to ethnically cleanse the land form Jews through violence. Once again, a BLATANT difference to contradict your blood-liable lies.
