Here I can see no understanding, since hams started stronger attacks as soon as Sharon announced the withdrawal for the next year. And even the pullout was made under fire. All of this enabled hamas to make it appear as its victory. I believe Israel should act accordingly to its own interests, not minding what the other side is thinking. And, if the pals attack, retaliate.
