Analysis: No one can help the Palestinians but themselves

Currently there are no plans to change Israel's military strategy or its targeting of Hamas and other terror leaders. "Security forces will continue to work around the clock to thwart attacks and stop ticking bombs," one official said. Such operations are aimed at hitting terrorists and hampering the infrastructure, a senior IDF officer said. "The army goes to great lengths to differentiate between the civilian population and terrorists.

In the Sajaya neighborhood all those killed were armed. Unfortunately the fact that they choose to operate from within the civilian population means that casualties among civilians cannot be ruled out. In Wednesday's raid some civilians were wounded but from Palestinian gunfire and not by soldiers," the officer added.

The main cause for concern is the growing strength Hamas is gaining on the street and the ongoing refusal of the Palestinian Authority to act against terror and corruption, the officer said. "The Palestinian Authority is on the verge of collapse and deteriorating quickly. Anarchy prevails," the officer said.

Palestinian misery is a result of Palestinian terror. I will leave it at that.
