34. If by peace and prosperity you mean...

having far right Jewish extremists armed with guns run into your house because an old discredited book told them that your house was their property, beating your children in the street because their Palestinian and having Israeli onlookers do nothing, the continuation of illegal settlements, and not being recognized by the U.N. because the U.S. is hypocritical about its values, then yes, the West Bank is full of peace and prosperity.

Sorry. Both sides do horrible things to one another and they can't contain their extremists. Hamas wants Israel destroyed and far right Israelis want to kill every man woman and child in Gaza. The two sides hate each other. Period.

The people of Gaza are in disarray, you could probably find a Gazan who hates Hamas and find plenty of Gazans dancing for Israel's destruction. I've also heard personally of many Israelis calling for blood and becoming completely indifferent to suffering caused by the blockade of Gaza (a declaration of war btw). The one with the greater military and diplomatic power will win.

As long as the U.S. does not go to war with Iran because we can't help but be manipulated by Israel is the only thing I care about.
