"vain repetitions of the impossible"
If peace is impossible, discussing the subject is a waste of time - we may as well sit on our hands and send flowers when the time comes- wonder if we can book tickets for the show!
By ponting the finger, as you have done, "But, once again, don't tell us; don't tell the Israelis. Tell Hamas" you have obviously chosen your side by absolving Israel in any of this - your prerogative.
Israel has made it perfectly clear that it is not interested in any peace deal that doesn't include them continuing to occupy and expand, and continue to allow the to treat non-Jews in the territory as lesser mortals.
It deliberately sabotaged the last round of talks to the extent that eve n their strongest supporters, the U.S., drew back.
Peace talks as before are obviously a waste of time; without American blanket support and with full U.N. participation, things could be different - otherwise what - another Syria, where the world stands by and does nothing about the butchery until it has escalated into something else?
At the moment, we are getting nothing from Israel but belligerence and vengeance, from Gaza, fatalistic despair and 'spitting fish'
We both know how far things can go when the world stands by and does nothing
