Israel must change its strategy if it wants peace, but Israel does not want peace. Surely the Haaretz editorial staff must know this. Peace would lead to a significant withdrawal from the west bank. This would cause bloody chaos in Israel. The current strategy is aimed at continuing the hostilities. These hostilities act as a distraction from Israels ongoing west bank expansion. Does Haaretz or any Israeli think that the Israeli government wants to withdraw from even part of the west bank settlements? Even if it was so, do you think that Netanyahu is the one to do this? Israel will not seek peace. In the end, it will have to be crammed down Israels throat by a strong American president. Until then, the "Gaza strategy" will not change, except to become harsher.
