Blessed Are the Peacemakers

Israelis of good will were negotiating a cease fire and peace accommodation, independent of the Israeli government.  Then the Israeli government killed the leader of the Hamas side.

Now Israel and Palestine are exchanging missiles.

Repeated unsuccessful assassination attempts by Allied Forces led Hitler to believe he was personally invincible.  His handpicked successor, Rudolf Hess, flew to England at risk of his own life to personally appeal to Churchill to avoid war.  Churchill would not meet, and went to the movies instead.

Admiral Canaris, the head of Germany's military intelligence, tried to work out a overthrow of Hitler, if given some Allied guarantees.  None were forthcoming.  Canaris was exposed and tortured to death.

A just war means you must try all means to avoid war.    We get the exact opposite.
