israel will never destroy Hamas and not because israel can't. hamas, just like the PA in the west bank are just apparatuses to israel's security, and those that launch the rockets from Gaza are not hamas members. before hamas took control over Gaza, i personally thought their message was clear ( not that i endorsed them ) but since they took control they are just like the other Arab dictators that'll never leave their seats and at the same time never do anything they talked about prior to their "election". oh btw i am certain the israeli soldier prisoner in gaza would be freed in the 6 coming months, with a lot of palestinian prisoners freed.
