Gazans in particular and the Arab world in general are entirely to blame for the carnage in Gaza and bear full responsibility for the bloodshed and suffering that is going on there. None of this would be happening if they would accept Israel’s right to exist and allow Israelis to live in peace, free from attack and the death and destruction that is constantly being rained down upon them. There could be peace tomorrow if the Arabs truly wanted it. That they choose otherwise means that the consequences are on their shoulders and no one else’s. And yes, it has always been thus.
People who point their fingers at Israel over Gaza are deluded and pointing in the wrong direction. You want peace in the Middle East? Get Arabs to change their attitude and behaviour and stop bombing and killing and trying to wipe Israel off the map. Do that and you’ll have it. Don’t and you won’t. It really is that simple.
