Perhaps Abu Ubaida has forgotten that it was Hamas that started the last war. It was Hamas that "imposed" the battle on Israel by shelling civilian homes. Granted that Hamas may have better missles, but how many shots will they get off if Israel is forced to invade a second time? If the Hamas leadership really cared about their own people, they would make peace with Israel. Or at least, instead of spending their vast wealth on destroying Israel they would build their own country in Gaza.
