the Hezbollah model?

Reader comment on item: "Today Gaza, Tomorrow Jerusalem"

I dont fully agree with this assessment, because I think Hamas terror leadership understands that they are not the reason for IDFs withdrawal and are easily overmatched by IDFs superior force. The Lebanon border, while sustaining some minor attacks is relatively stable. Hezbollah doesnt attack because of a threat from a heavy IDF retaliation, and also because they have no legal or moral claim to attack. In the end however, a settlement less or a settlement more will make no difference however, as the anti-Zionist and anti-Western hate from groups like Hamas and Isl. Jihad stems from Wahabi-fascist doctrine, not from 'illegal' Israeli settlements.
