When a baby in Gaza tragically perished over the weekend, Palestinians blamed Israeli forces but Islamic Jihad has reportedly confirmed to the family that its own misfired rocket was responsible.
Many Western progressives, including those in elected office, who claim to support peace, equality, and social justice, seem to think it is OK for Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad to launch rockets at Israeli civilians.
The violent spasm from Hamas-run Gaza isn’t just another episode in the ongoing Palestinian-Israeli conflict or merely another incident in a cycle of violence in which the Palestinians are given no agency.
Hamas seems to be genuinely unnerved by the ongoing protests in Gaza, and may threaten conflict with Israel to distract from the domestic opposition.
Hamas and Benjamin Netanyahu can agree on one thing at least: now is not the time for a war in Gaza.

In the face of strong opposition from the Trump administration, the United Nations repudiated Israel on Wednesday for the country’s response to violence incited by Hamas along its border with Palestinian-controlled Gaza.
