    It is very sad what is going on in Gaza. I have always favored Israel in a struggle against overwhelming odds surrounded by enemies. The UAL wanted to eliminate them in 1967 but were soundly beaten. Shame and humiliation led to madrassas and Islamic fervor. You Kippur war resulted. US and Russia ended it unfinished. OPEC squeezed western countries. The unrelenting terrorism of PLO, Hezbollah came then Fatah and Hamas. It is justified resistance. Expansion of territory is cruel and bloody. USA and genocide with Native Americans, UK colonization, and the Holy Roman Empire. You must fight for every acre or hectare and defend as long as you can. Romans, Moors, Crusaders, Persians Greeks it is always the same. Sunni against Shiite, Protestant agsainst Catholic, slave vs. free, tribe against tribe. It will never end. The sad truth is that there is never an end to any battle until there is a final conflict. Pain is no longer worth the sacrifice. Hamas must decide.
