Armed UN presence makes sense. UN was the one which sanctioned the partition and had a HUGE hand in creating the mess. Now that the SHTF, i think they need to do something to fix it especially considering that Israel or America is not going to do anything to assist the palestinian cause.

Who gives a crap if hamas protests or israel protests, the mess has been created by the UN and it should be the one to clean up after itself and pull both parties in line in order to save innocent lives.

Oh and i dont understand why the Veto still exists. It has caused nothing but trouble. It should be abolished - if not then the countries with vested interest in a conflict should not be allowed the right to vote and use the veto power.

What is the UN waiting for? Deploy a strong force to Gaza


On their own, Israel and Hamas are doomed to a perpetual state of war no matter how much international diplomatic horsepower is applied to resolving the conflict. But there is a solution that the world has been adroitly avoiding for 40 years.

The Security Council needs to show some rare backbone and authorize a strong UN force under the UN Charter's Chapter 7, which authorizes the use of deadly force as necessary, and deploy it within the Gaza Strip, taking on the responsibility to provide the security to which Israel is entitled.

The oft-expressed idea of putting international monitors into the Gaza Strip to control smuggling and the firing of rockets is ludicrous: Hamas would run rings around any unarmed outsiders whose only mandate was to "observe and report."


It's an idea that may have some merit, except I don't see HAMAS taking kindly to it and could see many small arms battles between the UN force and HAMAS if this solution is used.

I have read elsewhere that NATO soldiers are not exactly as honorable as RoboCop. I read that many of them engaged in crimes like theft, beatings, extortion and rape as well as murders for hire. There are corruption issues as well like the oil for food deal.

I would imagine that as the Israeli population grows the land allotted to the Palestinians shrinks. The simple reality is that land is a resource as well as energy. The Israelis are the dominant group and that simply squeezes the Palestinians.

I have trouble visualizing a lasting solution to this and it seems that the NATO peace keeper idea is better than nothing. Naturally the Israelis can't police the other side and after a while we would wind up to the sea.

A strong UN force with the authorization to use force is an excellent idea. That would definitely show that the UN has a backbone. The only problem then would be finding countries with the backbone to supply those troops to the UN force.

You have a point there, Jam.

But if every arab nations around are welcoming palestinian for exile, I don't think Israelis will restraint themself. They will push stronger for the exodus of Palestinians.

Jordan went on civil war almost 40 years ago, Lebanon is still debased since exodus of Palestinians.

What appears to be a lack of compassion maybe some self protection for states like Egypt.

On the other hand.

It is quite a nonsense, or cheap, or cocky for the US administration to support without any reserve the actual behavior of Israeli government, killing and bombing arabs and in the sametime begging Arab countries for 300 Bl $ to support US economy, wich in return support Israel economy and army.

Remember the "7 day war"....tomorrow is day # 7. An optimum date to mop up military operations and take the initiative to call for a truce or cease fire for humanitarian reasons.

possibly those sympathetic with the Israelis may lead the way as far as UN peace keepers go.

Temporary truce will only make it worse, they need to get it over with this time anyway possible.

I know the UN could volunteer the services of the IDF since they are close by!
