I wish, after the current conflict, I could see a peaceful end but facts on the ground will prove otherwise.
You have to really understand the deep political and religious ambitions of groups like Hamas, Hizbollah, Islamic Jihad to truly appreciate that there can be no permanent peaceful solution to the Middle East conflict.
Their Charters, their indoctrination, their faith, will always prevent them from achieving a new Middle East based on a two state solution. For them Israel, as a democratic Jewish state, will always be an abomination in their eyes.
Therefore, Israel is condemned to a threatened future through no fault of its own.
