    I agree with Bradley's overall point, but I take issue with presenting the conflict as though it is 2 equally situated sides. There is a HUGE power imbalance (hint: it is heavily tilted toward the side with the 4th strongest military in the world and has U.S. unconditional support). The way this power is being utilized consistently violates human rights, resulting in a humanitarian crisis in Gaza. The number of civilian deaths and injuries creates fertile ground for another generation of rocket launchers. There is currently one state controlled by one side, with two peoples & 3 classes of rights: Jewish Israelis-full rights (unless you are Reform or Conservative, then there are issues), Palestinian Israelis-on paper they have full rights, but in reality there is institutional discrimination in every area of life including healthcare and education; Palestinians in the Occupied Territories-virtually no rights & subjected to daily harassment & discrimination by the IDF & settlers.
