If I ever learned the meaning of hatred and evil that would be HAMAS!

Peace, Oslo Worked, does this?

In the 1990's things were better, the Palestinian Authority had a semblance of government, Clinton was a capable mediator, and tensions were reduced. That is about all that can be expected. A 2012 Ceasefire was a good idea. Some sort of interim deal should have come about in the last year, but Obama unreasonably insisted on a complete return to pre 1967 borders and Israel proposed little.

Now is this going to succeed. There are 1,000 murders a year in Chicago; why did this have to degenerate into an all out war. It seems like World War 1 where a series of miscalculations caused a prolonged and sad war.

There should be some type of ceasefire and work towards some type of interim agreement. Right lies somewhere between give up all the land and go back to 19676 and nothing will work but constant war. Mediation is needed to reduce conflict, tension, and loss of human life. Relative calm should not have been so easy to break.

Are you for real?

You must be kidding. Almost 2,000 Jews died because of the Oslo agreement. Clinton capable? Of what?
The Arabs don't want peace. Their charter calls for the complete destruction of Israel, G-d forbid.
If you are already on this web cite, so read the articles about Hamas. Yes, the Arabs wants "piece" - a piece of Jerususem, a piece of Haifa, of Tel Aviv, etc.

No, Oslo did not work

NONE of the hopes for Oslo came to pass.

ALL of the predictions of Oslo's critics and protestors came to pass.

NONE of Oslo's supporters have admitted it.

Israel and their enemies have irreconcilable differences.

Israel has nothing to offer Hamas, and the PA for that matter that they want.

Hamas and the PA have nothing to offer that Israel wants.

Any cease-fire or truce that is less than permanent is a waste of time.

What is needed is to utterly defeat the enemy so that they permanently lose hope. As long as they hope of defeating Israel this thing will never end. Anyone who truly cares about the Arabs will try to convince them of this before they hurt more of their helpless people trying. Because the big brave masked shooters and chanters won't fight like men; they are busy hiding behind skirts and teddy bears.
