Can someone explain to me how steadily firing nonstop rockets at Israel and building tunnels from which to threaten and terrorize Israel is not considered militarization from the Palestinian side? I get that Israel used a sledgehammer to squash an ant so to speak approach, but to excuse the use of violence and force by one side and not the other, seems to me to be a huge bias. As well, to suggest that Hamas and the Palestinian side in this conflict is peace-loving and only a victim in all of this, seems also one-sided. BOTH sides in this conflict must adjust their policies and their approaches to each other…but on this site I am seeing only Israel being vilified. Nobody is addressing the fact that what happened in Gaza was partly a consequence of constant threats and attacks on Israel. No matter how disproportionate some might feel the power balance may be…violence cannot and must not be condoned on either side… An end to violence means an end to violence on both sides.
