People giving advice to India to learn from Israel is the most underestimating statement in my opinion. The notion of invincibility vanishes when the notion of Jehad gains momentum. Nobody can forget the remarkable resistance shown by Hezbollah against Israel during their invasion in Lebanon a few years back. The present advancement in Palestinian areas specially in Gaza shows the urgency of Israel to fix matters before the change of Power process in USA. The transition period may be ideal for them but to my thinking for Hamas, the sword was always on their head even if the conflict was not charged up like this.

Hamas is the group of valor Jehadis who have long decided to become martyrs and making them fear is a very nasty approach which would yield zero result. Civilian casualties were deliberately initiated to put pressure on Hamas from Palestinians to stop pounding rockets inside the soil of Israel. Nobody thought that Hamas was doing that to charge Israel up and make them enter the trap already set for them. The moment Israel decided to enter into ground war, the next moment Hamas found their plan moving right on the track. Now when Israel crossed the lines and entered the areas of Hamas's influence fierce fighting and remarkable resistance is noticed.

The action looks similar to what was happened in Lebanon where Hezbollah although suffered huge casualties but stopped the advancement of Israeli Army with Iron courage. For some reason if we believe that LeT or any such organization initiated the Mumbai terror attacks, may be we can see that in the context of resistance displayed by Hezbollah and now Hamas. May be it was a plan to charge India up or to make them initiate some kind of war. The knack of kicking back iron forces of Israel and making them step back was possible by the help of Allah and due to the gift of self belief granted by the Lord to Mujahids of Islam who are ready to use their fist against the conspiring forces.. Muslims love to die in the way of Allah which makes them different when it comes to face to face confrontation.

Now the war is not against a regular army. The army is of well trained guerillas who are now millions and scattered all around the globe whether you call them Hamas or Hezbollah or Lashkar e Taiyiba or whatever. The atrocities committed against Islam is creating more and more people who are now coming forward to join these armies. The point is, how can you control these forces. Their power base shifts with time and they have now united their force and gaining much expertise due to continuous operations since the last two decades. The table is soon to turn as I always say. Many were laughing at my claims but truth is the West is now quickly loosing the rope of control Their hands are wet with the sweat of nervousness. Now they don't have any direction of action. The enemy is not a single group or few persons. The enemy for them is now huge with billions of people supporting who found the actions against Islam extremely unjust and unacceptable. Hope in the next few days we would see another shameful retreat from the Israel.

Hamas is ready to teach a lesson of the lifetime to them. Indians are nowhere near Israeli courage and expertise. They lack self belief and courage of highest level required to deal with such issues. The initiating of any war against Pakistan would only add to the agony of the country which has the most huge population of starved poor people... Better understand that ...the Indians.
