Israel has tried every type of attack imaginable agains Hamas. They have assasinated the leaders, jailed them, bombed them, cut off utilities to Gaza, occupied them, boycotted them and instigated civil war against them. All this seems to have had no effect upon Hamas, who is stronger today than ever before. The collective punishments that Israel has levied against Gaza have done more hurt to Israel than to Hamas. It is common for Israel to claim that Hamas will not compromise. This is not true at all. Hamas has made many offers to comprimise, calling for 10 year truces, offering prisoner exchange, offering recognition of Israel. It is important for Israel that these offers be buried. Israel wants Hamas to always appear to be the devil walking on earth, wanting only to kill and maim. Since all else has failed, try talking to Hamas.
