history repeating itself becomes farce (and if not a tragedy, it remains tragic for each of its victims). But the story unfolding currently is a repeated one for the simple reason that Israel refuses to end the occupation and, instead, has long decided to emphacise deterrence. The loss of life -- in modest numbers among Israelis and in large numbers among Palestinians -- is part of the Israeli calculation. This is the approach successive Israeli leaderships have sold to the Israeli public. Both leaderships and public are responsible.
