With one international force on its northern border to control Hezbollah, some establishment Israelis are now calling for an international force for their southern flank to control Hamas and legitimize the conditions in Gaza Ghetto. It is not a trap the world should fall into; far more is required of the Israelis before international forces get involved. First and foremost a real Palestinian State, an end to the Gaza ghetto/prison, and a complete end to Israeli apartheid policies and mentality.
"An international force could bring about the end of the Qassam fire, and that is supposed to bring about the end of Israeli military operations. Along with the establishment of a Palestinian unity government, which Hamas will not lead, and which will include mostly experts, this combination of measures could bring new hope. And maybe it would even constitute the basis for the renewal of talks between the sides.
Israel must initiate the move and thus appear interested in calming the situation. The world, for its part, should volunteer for the mission. The prime minister, who has left for political talks in Washington, could bring this idea with him, which has never been tried between Israel and the Palestinians and, in doing so, advance a new reality."
