Why promote revenge? We must work peacefully towards a One State solution. That means not responding to provocations with violence. Gazans are imprisoned and humiliated, so it is no surprise that they feel anger, if not hatred towards their oppressors. But violence does not serve their purpose - as we have seen, it just draws fire. Far better to live peacefully. World sympathy is by a long shot with the Palestinians, but this is squandered by violent reprisals, even though you may feel it is justified. Fact is, it doesn't help. Who suffers? Ordinary Gazans. It is irresponsible for the regional players to threaten Israel. Far better to embrace peace and work towards a single state with equal rights for Jews and non-Jews, so that Palestinians may benefit from a better future. There is enough land for everyone there, after all.
