    This is a lose-lose situation for Israel. The world is becoming increasingly aware that Israel has made no real efforts to restart the peace process and end its illegal settlement of occupied territory. This, compounded by another round of fighting and the seemingly inevitable civilian casualties in Gaza will do wonders for the BDS movement. I do not suggest there is an easy answer to this mess, but I know that another Cast Lead will not be taken lightly. Israel suffered only a flesh wound from the Goldstone report compared to what might happen if another massacre occurs.
