The Israel-Gaza conflict has broken out in war, and nearly every country has taken a side.
France's Le Monde speculates that "Hamas probably has nothing to gain."
England's Guardian airs a Palestinian perspective: "Our people have the right to self-defence and we will not die in silence anymore."
In Israel’s Haaretz, Alan Dershowitz advises readers “to differentiate between war crimes committed by terrorists and legitimate acts of self-defense.”
Al-Jazeera is running an opinion piece that highlights “the media double standards in the West.”
And the BBC reports that the United Nations is sending its Secretary-General to Cairo “to join talks about a possible truce.”image credit: AP Photo/Bernat Armangue
