Earlier you said
"My point is simple, violence is the choice of Hamas, they should be prepared for the consequences."
I think perhaps you've helped me back up a level to view this from a wider scale. If you substitute "Hamas" in your statement with "humans" that gets us a lot closer to the root of the problem. No matter how many of us abhor violence, especially when it entangles the innocent, we seem unable to let go of it as a species. It takes many to bring peace, only a few to disrupt it and restart the cycle of violence.
The irony that Secretary of State Clinton is seeking to broker a peace in a place armed by us, just a hop skip and a jump away from countries still marked with craters from our bombs, is quite lovely. America the Peacemaker.
