In that sense, I would put forth that the violence on both sides is irrelevent and a distraction from the real problems of housing, job security, and opportunities for the young people.
At long last, an anti-Israeli sentiment that I do, actually, agree with.
So what's next? How do you improve the Palestinian housing, job security and opportunities, when any Dollar you put into the area goes into corrupt officials pockets? How do you give them opportunities, when Hammas will use those employment opportunities in order to carry out attacks?
Do you know that Hammas has viewed, up until not long ago (possibly still), the Palestinian poverty as an advantage? They're afraid that if the Palestinian standard of living increases, that the support they get will dwindle.
I'm not saying there's nothing Israel can do. I'm also happy to say that this point it finally getting more attention in Israel. Still, the Palestinian have had a lot of control over their own situation, for quite a lot of time now, and have, with the exception of Salam Fiad's short tenure as PM in the west bank, failed to use it to improve things.
