I used to be a moderate supporter of Israel (support of Israel's right to exist, while respecting Palestinian refugees), however, at this point I'm incensed. It's obvious that Hamas is a reckless body, but Israel is the one in control of the area via occupation. The power dynamic places the onus on Israel to be the one to control the direction of the peace agenda. Everytime, however, peace is brought up Israel places so many pre-conditions and takes so many backwards steps (settlements) that I just can't support this anymore. If Israel ever wants peace, it is in their power to obtain it. Stop expecting unconditional American support, because it won't be there soon if this continues.
