Both sides are suffering from the means they used earlier on to solve the problems. The means they used produced the result they're getting. Until they change those means there is no hope of getting better results. Everything else is just trying to justify the horific acts that both sides are using on each other. None of what they are doing will solve the problem. There is no justification that makes sense because it is all based on religious faith. Both sides claim to be carrying out the will of an angry God. Both of the people claiming to speak for God say God wants revenge. Revenge is an endless cycle. No one can win such a war. They can only tire of it when enough people have died that they can't remember what it was they were fighting about.
