Published in Ha'aretz recently is evidence that Hamas (and groups like it) doesn't merely want to destroy Israel; it's an even bigger grudge. The Gazans have an untenable living situation, but the deliberate teaching of canards of hatred only help perpetuate the suffering. Not acknowledging the legitimacy of the other and the connectedness that historically binds them together is suicide by way of homicide.
The only way forward is acknowledging the other's suffering. As humans we must all offer compassion and healing to move toward a better way. Spreading lies and hatred only boomerang back on our own. Let's stay positive while exposing those who would continue on the negative way.
