Progress Report:Israel-Palestine Path To Peace ...
Remember saying and/or hearing silliness such as this when you were a kid?
"Well, you started it!"
Then ask yourself the question - where did it ever get you? What it did it ever solve?
Israeli tanks, bulldozers move into Gaza
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Israeli tanks and bulldozers backed by attack aircraft moved into the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday in the biggest operation in the territory since Islamic Hamas forces wrested control in June, setting off clashes with militants.
An Israeli tank shell fired at a group of Islamic Jihad fighters killed three, while missiles fired from an aircraft killed two unidentified militants, hospital officials said.
Schoolchildren ran through the streets of Khan Younis, let out early from school so they could take refuge in their homes.
Tanks and bulldozers were about a mile deep inside southern Gaza, on the main road between the towns of Khan Younis and Rafah, and deployed over a 2.5-mile stretch of territory.
The military described it as a routine operation "against the terror infrastructure." Militants in Gaza routinely fire crude rockets and mortars at Israeli border communities, and smuggle in weapons
Residents and Hamas security forces said at least 30 tanks
and bulldozers took part in the operation, but the military said only 10 tanks were sent in.
Read the rest of the bad news.
So, who, in all honesty, did start this ongoing, and obviously, ultimately, mutually fatal fiasco?
The truth is that it depends upon where we (that's you, me, us) choose to (conveniently), enter the narrative.
Here's another truth - any insanely stubborn, self evidently futile 'eye-for-an-eye' philosophy can only ever end up one way - with everyone (without exception), being blinded:
"When I was a child I spoke as a child.How about you?
I understood as a child.
I thought as a child; but when I became a man I put away childish things."
