Hamas Wants Quiet As It Prepares For Next Assault on Israel

Strategically, Hamas remains as committed as ever to its objective of destroying Israel and toppling the Fatah-run Palestinian Authority in the process. Tactically, however, Hamas exhibits pragmatism and won’t rush into wars with Israel when conditions are ill suited.

Hamas looks at the long run, and remains convinced that it can eradicate Israel, even if it takes decades or centuries.

    Isn’t this one of Hamasses’ calls for a fake peace or temporary cease fire called a “hudna”? I’m with President Al Sisi for his influence on them and kicking out the MB in the area.

    This is the Muslim way. Consider how long they waited to reconquer Spain and other places. Any attempt at making peace with them is a lost cause; they do however understand strength which is why only a complete crushing of them can bring about “peace” at least until they once again spot weakness.

    Hamas has to act quickly as soon as Israel completes their underground barrier – they will be relegated to lobbing ineffective rockets that Iron Dome seems to deal with reasonably welll.
    Also they are in a pissing contest with Fatah – and Fatah is threatening to stop paying the electricity bill to Israel which means all of Hamas will soon be sitting in the dark – in Mo logic what better way to unite with Fatah than a war with Israel.

  • Gaza should be emptied, its inhabitants exported to Arabia, and the city razed to the ground.

    Taking the Jew-hatred out of Hamas would be like taking a fish out of the sea.

      I say taking Jew-hatred out of Islam would be like taking a fish out of the sea.
