Peace is Impossible
Watching the "let's defend Israel/trash Palestine" chorus come out every time Israel does some dumb shit makes me pessimistic that peace will ever occur in that region. Whenever there is a one sided condemnation like that, nothing gets accomplished. Okay, a few bad apples in Hamas blow up some Israelis, that is bad too. But killing nine peace activists trying to bring supplies to Gaza is probably far worse because I realise that my tax dollars are probably going to that. Once Israel stops killing people, Hamas won't have a reason to retaliate and boom, you have peace. But that's a rational solution and will never happen because some politicians (even Democrats) have too much loyalty to whatever Israel does and nobody will win.
