    Have can someone claim victory via unjustly killing of women and children? The winner will be the one who would address the root cause of this conflict and try to solve it, and I believe the only solution is the one provided by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia several years ago when he stated, "If Israel would withdraw to 1967 borders, the Muslim world will recognize Israel and do business with her". Instead of availing this opportunity Israel has been hell-bent in grabbing more and more Palestinian lands via settlements and other smart games. This approach will not augur well for the peace of the Middle East and the world because everything in the world gets sucked into this bleeding conflict. Let's not celebrate, let's reflect. Winners of today are the losers of tomorrow. Only history will tell.
