Fantastic, Hamas wins a respite from being wiped out by actions they instigated themselves…

Another victory for the Moon God then?

So lets sum up…

Hamas lost its (mostly) ineffective weapon stock piles, the Israelis managed to target at will their leadership, (the ones whom hadn’t run like billy-o towards and into Egypt that is)and the media coverage didnt go their way at all.

What they did manage, was prove how effective Iron Dome was, and that another half dozen batteries will mean game over for Tehran’s hoped for game plan.

Also one could point out that the resentment of the Hamas thugdom dictatorship and other radicalized nutjobs operating there, continues to ferment within the territory apace… Revolution is in the air!

Hamas being the target…

Raymond,

If you believe all the claims made by Israel then sure Hamas lost. But if you look serious at it Hamas hasn’t lost; That’s why in Gaza everybody celebrated and in Israel many protested. Hamas wasn’t broken in 2009 and isn’t broken now. I’m afraid you are born in the wrong age. You should have lived when Captain Drake, Admiral Nelson and Cecil Rhodes were still alive. But they are all dead.
