Israel abhors peace and stability. Its agenda depends on conflict and violence. It blames victims for its own crimes. It gets away with murder with impunity.

Blood could have been spared, said Baskin. Instead, Israel chose to keep living by the sword. Netanyahu will probably benefit in January elections. Israelis aren't smart enough to spurn him.

Baskin said Jabari believed Israeli/Palestinian hostility benefitted neither side. Several times he prevented Hamas attacks on Israel.

When rockets were launched, open spaces were targeted to avoid Israeli casualties.

Baskin showed Defense Minister Barak a copy of the draft truce agreement. Instead of choosing conflict resolution, he "decided not to decide."

Jabari "was in line to die, not an angel and not a righteous man of peace, but his assassination also killed the possibility of achieving a truce and also the Egyptian mediators' ability to function."

In other words, peace was possible. Israel willfully sabotaged it. They did it other times to perpetuate conflict. Palestinians are blamed for Israeli belligerence and violence.

Baskin added:

"I am mainly sad. This is sad for me. I am seeing people getting killed and that is what is making me sad. I tell myself that with every person who is killed we are engendering the next generation of haters and terrorists."

Israel killed Jabari to further violent conflict. Haaretz contributor Aluf Benn said "Israel killed its subcontractor in Gaza."

Jabari was in charge of maintaining Gaza security. Israel relied on him to maintain order. At the same time, he was called "an arch-terrorist," "the terror chief in charge," and "our bin Laden."

Israel pulls the same stunts as Washington. Enemies are invented to stoke fear.

Benn said in return for maintaining order, Israel funded Hamas "through the flow of shekels in armored trucks to banks in Gaza, and continued to supply infrastructure and medical services to the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip."

Amounts given were woefully inadequate. It's surprising anything was provided under conditions of siege. Jabari was also key in securing Shalit's release. In captivity, he ensured his welfare and safety.

Perhaps his subcontractor services weren't good enough. He could control Hamas but not other resistance groups. He was warned to restrain them. Israel's message was clear. "You failed, you're dead."
