    Why is it with the left it is always so black and white whereby you either choose to make peace option or you not make peace there is no shades of gray in the middle where you can want to make peace but for a variety of different reasons the peacemaking isn't happening. Making peace is not like going to the supermarket and choosing the peace brand rather than the war one. Peace making is about NEGOTIATION that means BOTH sides give and take not just present lists of demands and unless we can find that magic solution which both sides hate but both sides can live with then there is no peace. As for the casualty figures please try to remember Gideon Israel is not killing arabs for sport and then hanging their heads on the wall as trophies. They fight us and we fight back only difference is we will use F15s backs by Iron Dome for protection to keep Israeli casualties as low as possible but do maximum damage to the terrorist capabilities to fight. am sure you like so many other leftists have a nice romantic vision of war being like pistols at dawn where neither side has an advantage because we both have the same weapon. Just because we have tanks & jets to fight the enemy along with Iron Dome to protect us doesn't mean we should give Hamas the same things so this war is a fair one.
