When the war is over, I suggest Israel, US and EU adopt a dual track of rescue and recovery for Gaza: De-Hamasization* and a Marshall plan**.
I also suggest, with all seriousness, leaving Arab countries, Iran, Turkey and Ireland out of it.
*On the model of denazification, an Allied initiative to rid German and Austrian society, culture, press, economy, judiciary, and politics of any remnants of the Nazi ideology. The programme involved removing those in positions of influence and disbanding or rendering impotent the organizations associated with it.
**The Marshall Plan was the American initiative to aid Europe rebuild war-devastated regions, remove trade barriers, modernize industry, and make Europe prosperous again.
