go up in smoke. Why Qatar would invest in an entity that is sworn to the destruction of Israel, when it knows that Israel will strike back with force, is beyond me. Committing $ to rebuilding is great once there is a committment to peace. In any event, we all hope, that the money is put to good use and doesn't simply get wasted. Whether it does is totally in the control of Hamas and Gazans generally. If they don't attack Israel and renounce violence, even without recognition, Israel will not attack Gaza. If they don't renounce violence, Israel will go after those that perpetrate violence against Israel and Israelis and will, every single time there is an attack on Israeli soil, respond.
