Land of hope, or gates of hell?

What a truly awful New Year present Israel, with help from its Hamas enemies, delivered to the world when it launched its ferocious bombardment of Gaza. The immediate victims are the wretchedly poor Palestinians trapped between the superior weaponry of Israel and the evil men of Hamas.
