Now I may be criminally naive about the hatred that currently exists between Israel and Palestine. It is obviously at a level that I cannot ever understand but surely this is the chance for someone, somewhere to suggest to Israel who are obviously the senior partner in this showdown, to go back into Gaza.
This time they should transport doctors, builders and engineers. The new task force should quietly begin to rebuild an area so that the people have somewhere to go. When your family has nothing it is difficult to ignore shelter, food and medical supplies. The task force should ask nothing but demonstrate to the world that all they wish for is a peaceful outcome.
They have the resources, they have the means but do they have the will. This is purely a hopeful suggestion which could build bridges in more ways than one.
