It's not going to peter out - not now, not ever. If powerful, weapons-enhanced hatred is going to be brought to an end, that will be only because it was stopped by those who oppose them. Head-in-the-sand optimism surely is not going to do it.
What you can say about the current battle in this ongoing war is that the ideological lunatics of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood have succeeded in unifying Israel's fractious society around the idea that this has been forced onto us, and that sending thousands of our sons down south to stop the rockets and the men who fire them is simply unavoidable. And so too the deaths of innocents which are the inevitable consequence of the campaign of jihad.
Everyone, I can tell you, wishes there were a different way to look at this but there plainly is not.
