If Israel wanted their land they would simply take it. Their armaments are, by your own admission, far superior. They could control all of Gaza in a few days. They don't want their land, though, they want peace. But how can you have peace with folks whose express purpose is to drive you into the sea or exterminate your people? And those aren't just words, they try to accomplish these "goals" continually. Hamas is the aggressor, the Israeli government has an obligation to protect their citizens. If you bring a knife to a gun fight and still chose to attack, not only are you stupid, you're dead.
