    Historically, there is nothing about what Israel has done that will make even the least- informed condone what the IDF intends to do. From forcibly taking Palestinian lands and driving innocent Palestinian Arabs out in 1948, to the destructive, US-backed wars of 1967, 1973 and the Intifada of 1982, none of the resolutions or actions by the international community were met by the Israeli government. Those who claim Hamas and Hizbollah are terrorists should consider looking at themselves as such. The solution: The American people, a majority of whom support a 2-state solution should pressure our government to stop military funding to Israel if it refuses to return lands as agreed upon after the 1967 war; refuses to permit the Palestinians the right to self-determination; continues settlement building in the West Bank although it had previously agreed to return 96% of the land captured during their terrorist incursions and wars. Israel will not act unilaterally without US support.
