    There is a simple - as in devised by simpletons - theory at work. If only Israel spends months trying to starve Gaza Palestinians to death and destroy their lives if they do not starve, then those people will blame Hamas. Did the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto blame their more militant citizens? Only at the beginning of the Nazi program to starve them to death. There came a point where even the most liberal and optimistic internee in the Warsaw Ghetto saw the need to strike back against those who oppressed them. It is astounding that israel - amongst all other nations - has forgotten it's past and now emulates the worst of the enemies of Jews everywhere. Time to think, to reflect, to forgive oneself for committing evil acts which any decent person - or nation - would eschew. Then to stop those actions. If not for common decency, for the best that Israel can be, and hope for.
