Always the "tactician", your approach is to not regard the motives and root causes and reduce it all to military force.
When you are finally honest enough with yourself to admit that POSSESSION of the Gaza territory is the goal you might then more clearly see the solution to the situation for which the British laid the ground work over 60 years ago..
You forgot that Israel already gave the Gaza to the Palestinians!

Exactly. This conflict has nothing to do with "terrorism", or "Islamic fundamentalism". It is a power play, orchestrated by the Israelis, British and Americans. Get Gaza, dehumanize the population, lay groundwork for more theft of land.

Of course, considering that Gaza is part of the Palestinian homeland, calling them "terrorists" is ridiculous. They're freedom fighters.

Did you ever read a history book?
Or have you gotten all your information from behind the register at Stewart's?
You sound like a completely uneducated person ,who never gets any information first hand. Sorry to be snippy--
If you wanted to attempt intelligence, you could start to read, and then go and visit the place that you are blabbing about without any knowledge.
What prevents you from going to Gaza? Bon Voyage!!
You can go and be a human shield.

Go and meet the freedom fighters.
See if you like them as neighbors.Make sure you hide your cross, or star.
If you are a woman- better have a burka and give up your license to drive.
Or they'll chop your head off! Bon Voyage to you too!

Israel has no territorial claims over gaza and does not want it. Hamas however wants Tel Aviv.

Where was the palestinian government before 1948? If 1948 is the starting point of their catastrophe.
Where was the independant palestinian currency.
Where was the independant palestinian army.
Who was the head of state?
