Of the Era Post this Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Another 50 Palestinians died earlier today in the widening conflict that has now witnessed Israeli troops on the ground in Gaza hunting Hamas militants and attempting to destroy rocket launch sites and tunnels that contribute to the breech of Israeli security. Hospitals in Gaza are full. Dead bodies of civilians including children have been reported in the streets of Gaza. This conflict has gone too far. Innocents must no longer be victimized because of the lunacy and of the arrogance of others. 

A two-hour cease-fire agreed upon by the Israel and Hamas from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. today Gaza time at the request of the International Committee of the Red Cross must be maintained and extended. Peace talks that have shifted from Egypt to Qatar should be sped up in order to negotiate a lasting peace to the Palestinian people and to the Jewish state. 

Hamas's continuation of lobbying rockets into Israel must cease. It has brought death to too many Palestinians. While Israel has full right and responsibility to protect its citizens from harm, its response in Gaza has not been precise enough to avert growing numbers of civilian death among the children and the women of Palestine. Though Hamas remains responsible for the escalation of this conflict, Israel's response has killed too many children. To this end, Israel has demonstrated that it lacks the military precision technology needed to weed out an enemy hidden in an urban environment. Thus, in its military operation to destroy Hamas's capabilities to launch rockets into Israel, the Jewish state has now inevitably contributed to the radicalization of anti-Israel sentiments in the Middle East and to the anger toward Israel that will likely fester post this Israeli-Palestinian conflict because of the sheer numbers of innocents including children that have died so far in Gaza.

A cease-fire needs to last. A peace has to be negotiated. Enough is enough. This conflict is growing into a region-changing event. The violence must end now. Hamas has to stand down. Israel must return to its territory.
