Should United States Grant Asylum For Palestinians? Or Should America Bomb Israel?

Today a twelve story apartment building was leveled in Gaza City.Israel used American-made F-16's to destroy the building and kill a few Palestinians as a bonus. It's like shooting fish in a barrel.Next door in Syria the U.S. is making plans to bomb ISIS militants who are using Syria as a base of their operations in Iraq. Syria's Assad gets an American Air Force to do his work. Because ISIS is also attacking Syrian forces. Back to Gaza. Gaza and its 1,8 million inhabitants are running out of infrastructure. Sewage disposal has been bombed by our Israeli allies. Also water and critical medical supplies and facilities have been bombed as well. Does a pandemic of infection wait to make things worse?The U.N. says as many as 500,000 Gazans have been displaced.The facts in Gaza speak a slow motion torture on top of a collective punishment action used by our "ally" Israel. America reaches out to similarly situated victims around the world.In Iraq we bomb ISIS for Israeli-like aggression against Iraqis.Which brings up the question. Should we grant asylum to the Palestinians or would it be simpler to cut off aid to Israel? And if Israel doesn't listen, should we bomb Israel?
