Western leaders continue to blame Hamas for the inability to broker a ceasefire. They say a deal must have no strings attached blatantly choosing to ignore those that Israel has stuck to a deal.
Hamas want an end to the seven-year plus blockade of Gaza. As part of the deal Israel want to stay in the country, as a foreign invading force, allegedly to destroy all remaining tunnels. So both sides have attached strings to any ceasefire deal.
Israel chooses to say that Gaza could have had so much more if they had not decided to spend on tunnels. However Israel would have still held Gaza behind a blockade so that is a simplistic view and nonsense. Gaza would never have enjoyed the profitable tourist trade of Israel and more.
The so called buffer zone around Gaza has also reduced that country in size. It is land taken from Gaza and not Israel.
It is a mess and war crimes are being committed.
Added to western hypocrisy there must also be western shame as people and children and murdered.
There is no real news to report except that there have been more senseless killings, which the above slideshow highlights. The sick joke is that when hostilities end, temporarily or permanently, vast sums of money will be spent on rebuilding. Little wonder the world is cash-strapped or is it?
