Whilst the international community has called for the attacks to end, alliances on different sides of the border has been formed.
While Muslim nations and several other nations such as China have called for Israel to stop the air raids which have killed at least 360 Palestinians till date, the United States has defended Israeli deathly strikes and blamed Hamas for the cause of it.
Hamas, a militant group which was voted to power democratically in Palentine has not been recognised by the Axis of Evil as a legal and capable government. Similarly, Israel has not been recognised as a state having been allocated a small portion of land by Britain but have since grown in size as a result of invasion through victories in wars supported by the United States military.
It is no secret to the reasons as to why the United States government has been very supportive of Israel despite its aggressive approach towards achieving peace in the Middle East. Majority of major businesses which holds a big stake in the political arena in United States are owned and funded by Israelis.
This would be best quoted by Ariel Sharon, Israeli PM to Shimon Peres on Kol Yisrael radio on October 3 2001, “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”

A wrong step on the foot by U.S politicians on the Israelis and the U.S economy would tumble down.
United Nations as a world organisation has no power to dictate nor create a major shift in the drive towards peace where Israel is concerned. The UN is merely an organisation formed to create resolutions supported by world leaders towards the benefit of Israel and United States.
With an impending war on sitting on the fences, no doubt the U.S and it’s alliances in the Axis of Evil will be fully supportive Israel whilst the rest of the world watch Palestine crumble into rubble.
The Arab League of Nations and the rest of the world will only do as much as providing humanitarian support to Palestine. A show of military support for Palestine would no doubt list the country as a supporter of a ‘terrorist’ organisation.
With such superpowers in the world, it is sad to see that the political greed of such nations and the cowardice of the rest of the world allows such miseries to fall into place. At times like this, I wish I was a Prime Minister of a country. Given such powers, I’d publicly denounce such air raids, present historical facts and show support for a nation bullied by countries who declare themselves as peaceful and perhaps risk my job as a Prime Minister and face the possibility of assasination.
Nonetheless, perhaps if anything was to go by, the air raids by Israel was in retaliation to Hamas rocket strikes. Still, there is a huge difference in the potential damage between the two arsenals. To go further back, perhaps if Israel were to return the land they have invaded back to its rightful owners, such deaths and damages could be avoided. Even then, perhaps such attacks could only be minimized. Going further back, perhaps if Israel was never given statehood in the first place, the world would truly be at peace because there would be no hatred within the Middle East at all.
And for those religious scholars from the Christian, Jewish and Islamic faith may have known, the mere existence of an Israeli state is an indication that the world is coming to an end. So, maybe if the Israeli state was revoked, perhaps, the armageddon could be prolonged.
