This week Israel launched a massive bombing campaign of Gaza. The military wing of Hamas, which is headquartered in Gaza, responded with a barrage of rockets aimed at Israel. The dramatic escalation of violence follows weeks of tension after the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers and the revenge killing of a Palestinian teenager, reportedly carried out by a gang of Jewish right-wing extremists. As many as 100 Palestinians have been killed by the shelling, including at least 21 children, according to reports. So far, no Israelis have died in the conflict. But one man was seriously injured when a rocket hit a gas station in Ashdod, south of Tel Aviv. The images on television are dramatic. As The New York Times reported, Shlomo Brom, a retired Israeli general at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, compared the situation to a “Greek tragedy in which both Israel and Hamas are running toward something that neither wants.”
