[Let us hope for the best.  The U.S. has been no help and perhaps it will take the battle fatigue of on-going tit-for-tat to bring sanity into this situation.  The Hobbesian response to on-going civil wars in Britain was the imposition of Sovereign peace-keeping upon all factions.  That does not work well and is precisely what was done by Hussein in Iraq.  Can the Israelis and Palestinians bring forth their best people and impulses to end their never ending strife?  Allbest,  Ed Kent]

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
