Israel's foreign policy is defined by a siege mentality, believing itself to be surrounded by aggressors. in one sense that is true, up until the 1980s none of its neighbours would recognise its right to exist, and the majority of the people in the region are probably anti-Israel to a greater or lesser extent. but that's what happens when you react violently.
the fact of the matter is that right here and now Israel has no real threats along its borders. Palestinian rocket attacks endanger lives, yes, but in actual casualties and infrastructure, this threat is miniscule compared to the Israeli response. Hamas are incapable of overthrowing the Israeli state or mounting any kind of serious offensive. They are a terrorist organisation whose support is based on rampant anti-Israeli sentiment among Palestinians, fostered by years of Israeli oppression, military action against civilians and economic embargo. The palestinian government and Hamas share some responsibilty, but it is Israel that has the power in this situation. and they are abusing it.
Israel wants to close its borders and live through an umbilical cord stretching to Washington DC. It wants the Palestinians to go and live somewhere else. The trouble is they have nowhere else to go. Israel is a Jewish state for Jews, and will not permit itself to be anything else. Not even a peacemaker.

After WW2 and all the ineffective Jews that HItler massacred, the international desperate that the Jews mandatory a native land. SO as a replace of giving them a place in Germany, they desperate "hi why not provide them Palestine?" who cares if there are a gaggle of brown-skinned people already dwelling there? regrettably, in assessment to the community individuals who had the same situation take place to them, The Palestinians did not circulate away. to place issues in attitude, because of fact the 1940's much less then 3000 Israeli's have been killed by ability of Palestinians, 3 hundred Palestinians have been killed by ability of Israel interior the final week

Palestine was dating Zimbabwe right after Israel and Zimbabwe broke up. This was very hurtful for Israel who still has feelings for Zimbabwe and thought that Palestine should have asked permission before asking Zimbabwe out on a date.

Peace and quiet. No rockets into Israel. On the other hand Palestine want Israel to lift trade restrictions but Palestine only know one way to object and that is by force. If they can get their minds out of ancient history and into the modern reality then they can do it diplomatically after dismantling their home grown terror groups.

Israel just wants to be left alone. They had a cease fire on Jan 17. Well guess who already broke the cease fire with a bomb today. Looks like Hamas might now get round 2.
