They are suffering a poor existence but were offered continuing financial aid in 2006 conditional on non-violent opposition, the suicide attacks and missiles have been labelled War crimes by Human rights watch, and until they drop their aim of removing Israel from the map, there isn't a solution that anyone can offer them, I'm sure the man in the street doesn't think this but their elected governments are choosing this course of action
Looking at previous lessons, where the UK and USA have stepped into certain scenarios in the middle east only to be despised and slated both in the region and at home, why should any politician wish to sign his own resignation and step in, if the reasonably capable Middle East governments don't want to step in to assist their own, why should the west?
It isn't clever no one said it was. I said an honest politician will do it one day. Let's face it the Middle East have been threatening destruction of the west for many years, do you really think western leaders (America really) will tolerate this an unlikely scenario until the day it isn't.
it will happen as resources become not only scarce but controlled by hostile countries.
Your comment about sounding like a jihadist is relevant, unless the west starts to act in the same way the Middle East threat will continue. Our governments need to face jihadist behaviour with something more powerful, they will not go away or be calmed, so one day the American government (maybe not in our lifetimes) will wipe them away then pick up the resources
