    The Palestinians need to get on Hamas' ass, and get them to stop firing on Israel. They have only Hamas to blame for their suffering. Israel is only reacting to what is being done to them by Hamas, Israel accepted the cease fire, Hamas did not. Don't blame Israel, blame Hamas.
    Both sides need to stop this nonsense.
    When I was in the military (Air Force, 1981-1985, Marine Corps, 1987-1993) on both occasions going through boot camp, there was one recruit who never seemed to get his act together, and when he screwed up, the platoon took the hit for it. It was up to us to straighten this recruit out, or we would continue to take the heat. This Is what Palestinians need to do, straighten out Hamas and end this vicious cycle of violence.
