The battles for control of the lands in the Mideast have waged on for centuries, and date back to to twelve tribes of Israel as outlined in the Bible and the Torah. Today’s air strikes by Hamas and Israel in the Gaza area, and now Israel’s land push into the area serve to highlight the volatile nature of this area of the world. Hmasa has been listed as a known terrorist group, and a provider of terrorist support in the Mideast. Israel has been condemend by some as retaliating against Hamas with a show of force not warranted. The United Nations met well into the night trying to reach a resolution and a statement of position in this present conflict. What is truly important is that if a cease fire is to be reached, it must be done in such a manner that it is designed toward reaching a lasting accord, not simply a bandaid to the present conflict. This by no means suggests that the results now will be the “end all” of the Mideast problems, albeit that would be a great outcome, but perhaps from this bloodshed can come a new foundation for future resolution in the region.
