Musing on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Its like shampooing your hair. . . .

How many times has this scenario played out in my lifetime?

Hamas (or some other Islamist militant group) fires indiscriminately into Israel, shooting not at military targets, but at the general population.

Israel fires back, inevitably hitting and killing noncombatants, because the aforementioned jihadis hide among the general population.

American alphabet television has a tear-fest over the loss of life in Gaza.

Israel apologizes for hitting the noncombatants.

A cease-fire is called.

Hamas doesn't honor the cease-fire.

Israel resumes combat operations.

Some outside government brokers a peace deal.

Rinse, lather, repeat.

How many times? Does anyone know?
