More stubbornness, hatred, and violence in the Middle East

Here we go again. For several days now, Israel and Hamas have been exchanging deadly bombs and rocket fire.

And, like every such episode, nothing will be accomplished by the violence except for needless death and destruction. It will not lead to an ultimate solution to the ages-old territorial dispute in the region. That can only be accomplished politically.

But, as always, there is too much emotional finger pointing, and too much hatred in the way, for the parties involved to seriously seek a true and lasting solution.

And, as always, innocent civilians on both sides continue to pay the price.
