Israel initially had international sympathy and support after a brutal attack by Hamas on Israeli citizens, but quickly lost that sympathy with its excessively aggressive response. Even Israel’s allies called for a ceasefire, which was eventually agreed to, providing an opportunity for Israel to change course and claim a victory after damaging Hamas infrastructure. However, Israel’s leadership resumed the bombardment, despite the relief and hope for a new direction among millions of people affected by the conflict. This missed opportunity may isolate Israel and lead to lasting repercussions. Additionally, antisemitism was easily aroused, and Jews everywhere were put at odds with each other due to Israel’s actions. This could have been a chance to restore some sanity to the region, but instead, it seems to have been squandered.
