The headlines this week reeked of déjà vu, reminiscent of previous confrontations and intifadas, as conditions on the ground in Gaza are becoming more and more similar to those that preceded the 2014 war.19:05 05.02.16 | 4 comments
Other groups did carry out terror attacks, including the few suicide bombings they managed to achieve. Do you expect Israel not to fight terror if one of the terror groups mostly quiets down? Israel still had 50 terror warnings per day while Hamas was on its supposed hudna. Terror has dropped by over 95% in the past few years (when it comes to completed attacks) but that's mostly ISRAEL'S doing. The fence is keeping a lot of terrorists out, for one thing. The IDF has gotten incredibly good at finding the terrorists before they strike, too. Having ONE terror group stop the attacks means nothing when there is no one in charge of the Palis. There are dozens and dozens of terror cells that run independently. A hudna is completely useless.
