What do you think is stoking people's anger toward Israel, in its present intensity, at this particular moment? Israel will always be in the wrong, Israel will always be something people wish didn't exist, people will always nurture their pet conspiracy theories. But there are certainly things that can be done to moderate that situation.

So Israel is supposed to declare a truce, permitting HAMAS to be awarded a public-opinion win, *and* permitting normalization and improvement in Gaza under HAMAS' watch, and this impresses you as a move that will undermine HAMAS?
Singapore is fortunate that you haven't joined their diplomatic corps.
