  •  whether the US would respond as does Bibi (10+ / 0-)

    is beside the point.  Such a hypothetical argument does not move the discussion forward, it only makes for hypothetical oneupsmanship in a debate between people for whom there are no real-world consequences.

    Meanwhile the citizens of both Gaza and Israel suffer because Bibi has to continually prove that he is big and strong, regardless of the consequences to his people.

    Whether Bibi likes it or not, he needs to realize the real-world consequences of his actions.    A cease fire was in the works.  It was a first step.  He owed it to his people not to derail it.  

    I don't think Bibi wants peace.  If there was peace, Israelis might turn their attention to how poorly he runs his country in other areas--like the economy.  His backers, developers who want to turn occupied land into Israeli settlements, would lose money.
