Half the world think it is the Israelis and I wonder exactly what Israel would do if the Palestinians threw Hamas out of their country.
Once Hamas was out, and the Palestinians started rebuilding and living peaceful lives, hands up all those who think Israel would alienate the entire world by continuing to bomb them out of existence?
I just find that scenario too difficult to believe.
I have met Palestinians in Britain, when I was a salesman with Bayswater as my patch. They're great people and, on the whole, in those days, not at all aggressive. I don't believe they are aggressive now!
We must remember, when we see this violence in the West End of London, that all moderate Muslims are terrified of their radical wings and Imams, and if called upon to march, it would be a brave and foolish Palestinian to refuse. The violent jihadists amongst them are the ones making the real fuss.
I am beginning to read in the press that many of the moderates in Palestine are beginning to make noises which indicate they are beginning to realise that their real enemy is Hamas.
Some people on the Internet are saying Hamas is overjoyed at the Israeli bombing. Pray exactly what are they overjoyed about? Their constituents losing their homes? Their constituents going thirsty and hungry? Their constituents losing members of their families, including young children?

I have been over zealous with political comment lately so have now accepted the offer to assemble and write for two blogs on the WatchingUK website. The "Good News" blog is for items where we have benefited from the Brexit referendum vote and the "Bad News" blog is where others have tried to damage our chances of leaving the EU.
