The article starts off with very valid criticisms of Hamas, but then proceeds to level a few at the Palestinians - criticisms for which the responsibility is misplaced and raise question to the article's thesis of a "geopolitical conflict without moral complications." There are reasons why Palestinians have "no roads, no industry, no courts, no civil society at all." And, they are not from a lack of trying on the part of Palestinians. The "flourishing greenhouses" require water, which is in short supply in Gaza.

This article is as biased - if not more - as most other opinion pieces I've read on the Israeli-Gaza conflict (regardless of who's side is being taken).
