This is pretty basic but perhaps sums recent activity up

Many commentators have noted that the assault on Gaza occurred after Jewish settlers were removed and out of harm's way, and just as Fateh and Hamas had agreed on the terms of a document that, in effect, recognized Israel and suggested the possibility for renewed peace talks. It is not the first time that Israel has struck out to divert attention from diplomatic openings and forestall negotiations that would inevitably mean relinquishing territorial gains that it claims as its own.

Another attempt to forestall a 'peace offensive'? Once again, shades of Lebanon 1982.

Where will it end?
