What A strategy
In the latest Gaza conflict, it seems to me that analysts were correct in predicting that the Hamas would emerge stronger and victorious. The group is now emerging as one who dared and succeeded in scaring Israel. It also seems that their pronouncements include claims that Israel begged them for a ceasefire. While militarily, Israel may have had the upper hand, psychologically and politically, Hamas won.
Military battles, indeed, do not dictate the outcome of wars.
