I don't care for anything as inconsequential as spelling. You changed the idea. You said i wanted Israel to do something impossible. That is not the case, unless (as you seem to be arguing) you consider not being a despotic conqueror or acting in longer term interests to be impossible.
A despotic conqueror? Really? Last time I checked, Israel was a democracy, and had ceded control of Gaza to Hamas. Hamas has been singularly inefficient in providing relief to Gazans, while building up their weapon inventory.
I'm sure Israel would like to act on longer term interests. But stopping its citizens from being killed takes precedence. If Hamas really cared about the Palestinians, that would be their first care as well.
"Its" was confusing. Had no idea what you were talking about. The only thing I could think of was punctuation. For future reference, "You've changed 'its'" isn't clear enough.
It is impossible for me to negotiate the price of a new car when the organization responsible for selling the car is not involved. It is likewise impossible for Israel to negotiate with Hamas about stopping rocket attacks when, as you point out, Hamas isn't carrying out those rocket attacks. Israel can talk to Hamas about it, but Hamas can't do anything. There is no negotiating.
