Nah, the Isreali model is to slowly take more and more Palestinian land to where there is no such thing as a Palestinian state in the west Bank and to isolate the people in Gaza.
Also, Israel is well known in its history to assassinate and kill people. A great book on the topic was released a few years ago, Rise and Kill First.
Your line of thinking is also very flawed as the last 20 years have shown us in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, etc in that bombings that kill innocent civilians does more harm than good. Israel is only creating the next generation of enemies with their bombing in Gaza. I know they have to defend themselves, but their actions is the next step in this vicious cycle that is just continuing.
No one and I mean no one is in the right in this conflict. Neither side really wants peace because it means accepting some deep and hard truths about living together that would strip away what both states stand for: Israel as a a Jewish state and the Palestinians right to return.
It seems people keep trying to overcomplicate the issue in a bizarre effort to blame Israel.
It's been like 80 years - time to move on, for starters. Wars have consequences - history is filled with people's land being taken. This is not about Israel, it's about the "religion of peace" and the fact they are using Palestine as pawns in their war against Jews.
And if you want to talk about land being taken and who was there first, well if you go back far enough...
There is no defending Hamas. Israel has a right to defend itself against terrorist attacks. It's actually really fucking simple. But that's the modern left these days, insisting on putting the toothpaste back in the tube (but only to a certain point where it becomes inconvenient to the argument).
