There’s so much heartbreak in Israel and Gaza. There was no way it would be possible for Bibi Netanyahu, Israel’s Trumpian type prime minister, to rise above the knee-jerk reaction of wanting to wipe out Hamas, which cannot be accomplished without wiping out much of the population of Gaza. So much death and destruction has been wrought that most people on both sides are seeking revenge. The more revenge, the more heartbreak. A terrible chain reaction is in process.
