In interviews with MSNBC, the Palestinian official headed for the UN is demanding peace while the Israeli official is protesting that Israel only wants peace, so why is Gaza still sinking into the lower rings of Hell right now? Because Israel is still determined to decapitate Hamas, preferring a docile government in control of Gaza and because it is trapped in its own rhetoric of demonizing Hamas as a terrorist organization, rendering Israel incapable of even negotiating with Hamas. Yet a few years back, Israel was working to enhance Hamas's power in Gaza against then Yasser Arafat and the PLO. Now that's cynical politics.
Anyway, you can can compare these two officials' statements.
