Unfair to dump blame on Netanyahu

The Globe is misguided in placing onus on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for failing to deliver peace with the Palestinians, either through diplomacy or war, and goes a step farther, suggesting that Israelis should start seeking different leadership (“Cease-fire marks start of real work toward peace in Gaza,” Editorial, Aug. 28).

Yet no Israeli leader can achieve peace with an adversary such as Hamas in Palestinian governance. The Hamas ideology, written for all to read, is not one that seeks peace with Israel. It is one that seeks a piece of Israel — namely a 100 percent piece. Clearly that will never work.
