The complete idiot’s guide to Mideast peace – part 144


Rocket volley bombards southern Israel; two downed by Iron Dome | The Times of Israel  ‘Kerry condemns ‘despicable murder’ of Arab teen; Netanyahu calls for swift probe, as Israelis mourn day after three slain Israeli teens laid to rest’

Another familiar headline, one that is sure to be repeated time and time again in the weeks and months that lie ahead. And its companion piece where IAF warplanes attack targets in Gaza will, no doubt, be just as faithfully reported. It seems both sides have long become locked into this cycle of events, a pattern of mutual aggression that shows no sign of abating, primarily because no alternative means to substitute for these activities has yet been found.

And all of them with no Grace Kelly on hand to assist in ending matters once and for all.
