Certain talk-backers here repeat as if reciting a mantra that Israel has not been able to defeat Hamas. What has Hamas accomplished? Have there been waves of Israeli deaths? Each death is regretable, but there have been extremely few (as opposed to those of Hamas). Israel is a tourist Mecca again. Life goes on there and pretty darn well, too. May Israel always enjoy such "defeat" at the hands of Hamas. While we should seek peace with those who want it as well, the situation is not only not desperate but in fact quite favorable for Israel. All Hamas has is rallies and posters of their heroic dead. Idiots.
