If you have such a morally correct position, why are you talking to private citizens, when the world capitals do nothing?

Simply because the US promised to support the Israelis, and no country in this world is going to challenge the US. At least, not yet.
Israel is the superpower in the Middle East because of US desire for hegemony in the region. Via of Israel the US has sought to established a predominant influence to protect its oil interests. Thereby, Israel is given billions annually, a tiny nation the size of New Jersey with only 6/7 million Israelis; not only that, any country Israel propagandize as seeking to get the nuclear bomb is cause for the US to take notice. During the Iraq war, the NEOCONS
tried its best to get the US to bomb Iran. The NEOCONS
were the ones responsible for the lie "Saddam Hussein had WMD" which was articulately defined rhetorically by the Neocon Condoleezza Rice, then W's National Security Advisor.
"Since the end of World War II, U.S. relations with Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf states have been based on securing the terms of trade on oil that our government, and American oil companies and banks, desire. Where regimes were friendly to our interests, we propped them up militarily. Where regimes did not want to deal, or did not agree to our terms, and wanted to control their own oil production, set their own prices, and determine for themselves how profits were used, we supported insurrection and in some case, instigated it. The U.S. has a 'special relationship' with Israel, which is not an oil-producing state, but which is seen as a 'friendly' nation, and as a potential staging area for actions against nations in the region deemed not to be so 'friendly'."

Why are you asking such stupid questions?
Simply put, some posters don't delve deep enough to get at the root cause of the problem.
There is something seriously amiss when the US allow Israel to target hospitals when in reality the Palestinians simply do not have ANY PLACE TO HIDE, NO WHERE TO RUN, THEY ARE LIKE SITTING TARGETS, and still the Secy of State, Kerry, says the Israelis have every right to defend themselves from rocket attacks.
I say tell the ISRAELIS TO STOP STEALING THESE POOR VULNERABLE PEOPLE'S LAND!
The Palestinians have every right to fight the occupiers into their land who with the aid of the superpower, the US, is allowing Israel to do whatever she want to do to these defenseless people without an army and no where to run!
