Israeli forces launched a ground offensive against Hamas, which probably means a larger death toll over the next few days. I don't understand the way Hamas thinks. Sure, you have balls for fighting with the Israelis, but it's not getting you anywhere.
Past two weeks? Almost 500 Palestinians dead, over 2,300 injured, and water, food and electricity shortages for all of Gaza.
Israeli side? 4 dead.
It's a losing battle. In terms of war, Israel is like fire; throwing wood at it to try and beat it up will only make it stronger.
Disregarding the position of the remaining Arab states, who are useless when it comes to doing anything about the situation (besides denouncing the enemy and canceling new year parties in support), Hamas does not have the power to overcome, or even put a dent in Israel when it comes to military might. Why try? You're just sacrificing lives that aren't your own.
I don't have a solution to this, but I know that trying to go it against the Israelis isn't it, let alone trying to do it alone.
