The rising death toll in Gaza and ever-expanding swath of destruction in the territory are the perfect backdrop for the restoration of Hamas’ reputation.

First of all: Congratulations, Hamas. This is the second week of your most significant achievement of the past year: Israeli soldiers are back in the Gaza Strip again. It’s a safe assumption that a large part of the Israeli public doesn’t see it this way, but Israel’s incursion is the best thing to happen to Hamas in a long time.
