Winding Down in Gaza

Right now, the most sympathy Hamas has is coming from the U.N. and the European community. Most in the Arab capitals feel the radical Islamists needlessly pressed their rocketing one too many times. Nasrallah hopes for some maverick bomber or rocketeer that can’t be tied officially to Hezbollah to come to Hamas’s aid, and so far is passing on solidarity and the second front. The Palestinian Authority helped provide the intelligence on Hamas hideouts.

Most in the Middle East are privately sick and tired of Hamas, and/or people with their fingers on triggers still remember that the supposed Israeli “quagmire” entry into the West Bank in 2002 and into Lebanon in 2006 did terrorists quite a lot of damage and should not be revisited.
