The only way to end it is for one side to refuse to continue the cycle
For Hamas it is not a cycle.
They are on a road that leads to the destruction of Israel.
We can now see why they instigated all this.
They have accumulated a vast stockpile of lovely new Iranian missiles in hiding places not known to Israel.
If Israel did nothing, to break a non-existent cycle, it would become a country of cowering people in a land where normal life, work and school, are impossible.
But, it is not only Palestinian fanatics who dream of the destruction of Israel, is it boys...
