Israel has been successful at portraying its actions in the Gaza strip as a war against the Hamas movement; the simple fact is that it is a war against Palestinians.The Israelis have expended considerable effort, as they always do, in generating a wall of propaganda about their actions, aided in large part by media outlets and supporters around the world.The world's politicians will get nowhere if they approach the violence as a case of Israel versus Hamas, since it is clearly – based on the depressing figures – a war in which the overwhelming majority of victims are unarmed Palestinian civilians.
