Yes, Israel has done a crappy job of protecting Palestinian human rights. But it has *tried*. Can you even imagine Hamas making a token effort to protect Israeli human rights? The only reason it hasn't enacted mass slaughters (on purpose) of Israeli kids is because Israel is competent. If you are interested in a Palestinian society that prides civil discourse, religious tolerance, and the other tenets of the UN Charter under which they are defended, you should be interested in the destruction of Hamas. But please, keep in mind that this series of wars began 70 years ago with all of Israel's Arab neighbors simultaneously defying a UN peace plan that the Jews accepted. Forgive them if they've viewed the UN with a grain of salt since then, since we all know it would have done nothing to save them from their fate of utter annihilation.
