HAMAS VS. ISRAEL A POKER GAME

Reader comment on item: Reflections on Current Hamas-Israel Hostilities

Submitted by JACQUES HADIDA (United States), Nov 16, 2012 at 13:35

The way i see it Hamas just won round 1 of a poker game. Hamas did all they could to attract israel in a retaliation. and it worked

When the world will understand that Hamas does not care for the life of any individual, then we will make some headway. They lost 1500 people during Cast Lead, so today's 20 dead is nothing. Whereas for israel only one dead has the whole country in mourning.

Hamas does not care about peace or even having their own state. They want to get rid of the Zionist entity, they want no Israelis nor Jews around.

As for the six motives you mention, yes they all make sense and i wish neither the media nor the coming elections will get in the way of ending this crisis

By the way, Egypt has no choice but to get involved and Morsi will have to learn what side he should support, for although he has a population that is anti-israel, common sense should tell him otherwise as his ties to Hamas are not 100% safe (They still hold prisoners 4 of his policemen) And his economy depends on the US gifts.

And now, Israel is now about to win round 2, give another lesson to these poor losers. I can imagine one of their rockets aimed at Jerusalem hitting the Aqsa mosque and israel, as usual will be blamed for it
