Really……is it as you try to implicate? Or is it just as you want to?

'Palestinians' wanted Gaza-they got Gaza. 'Palestinians' wanted Israel out of Gaza-Israel got out of Gaza.

I suspect Israel would love nothing more than to live life free from rocket attacks and the like; so what should they do every time a launch of rocket fire lands in Israel…thank Hamas for the rain?

What does Turkey propose Hamas do in order to bring their own peace to Gaza? Spend more Israeli blood; or more egregiously, 'Palestinian' blood?

Hamas was voted in for the government that 'Palestinians' felt they were not getting from the 'Palestinian' Authority. So be it. But the Hamas have no diplomatic finesse when it comes to neighbor relations; and by their own words, they seek none with Israel. Unless one can understand that from a neutral position, then countries like Turkey will have a hard time dealing with what is going to happen in the Middle East.
