But the jury is still out and should Hamas continue launching missiles, Israel will not engage in a war of attrition and may still be forced to launch a full invasion of Gaza. The IDF inflicted enormous damage on Hamas, demolishing the major attack tunnels and destroying two thirds of its missile infrastructure. Indications are that the vast majority of Gaza inhabitants blame Hamas for the terrible devastation and casualties they endured.
Alas, yet again Israel has been pulverized in the battle for public opinion. The media mostly failed to point out that Hamas deliberately employed children as human shields and located their command posts and missile launching sites inside or adjacent to schools, mosques and UN centers. Israel was endlessly condemned for responding disproportionately to Hamas aggression, unleashing an outflow of hatred and a tsunami of global anti-Semitism reminiscent of the Middle Ages when Jews were demonized as the source for all the natural disasters facing mankind.
Any objective assessment of the IDF behavior would confirm that there has never been a military conflict in which such extraordinary efforts were taken to minimize civilian casualties. There are already murmurings from hostile anti-Israeli human rights and left wing groups to extend the demonization to demands that Israeli leaders be tried for war crimes. Many cowardly Western governments are likely to endorse or, at best, abstain from such a manifestly immoral initiative.
The initial Egyptian proposals, requiring a cessation of hostilities without preconditions, remain the only sane option currently available to Hamas and the ultimate outcome of the conflict will be determined by negotiations. The curtailment of Hamas aggression could only be achieved if the US and Western countries — backed by the Egyptians who revile Hamas as an extension of the Moslem Brotherhood — steadfastly supported the initial European demand for the disarmament of Hamas and monitoring of its future imports and funding to prevent the creation of new tunnels or replenishment of the missile stockpiles.
Indeed, if implemented, we could even visualize a major tilt in the political landscape in which the traditional hostility and hatred of Israel in significant sectors of the Arab world is superseded by alliances to confront the common threat of the radical Islamic movements. But we should not hold our breath that this scenario will eventuate. It is already being undermined by the repeated calls from the US and the Europeans to give control of Gaza to the Palestinian Authority headed by Mahmoud Abbas, and encourage him to create a Palestinian state as soon as possible.
This places Israel in an impossible position. Despite the conflict, Abbas has failed to dismantle the PA merger with the genocidal Hamas. It would be catastrophic for Israel to ignore the principal lesson of this conflict by failing to appreciate the perils that we would confront were we to withdraw the IDF and accept a Palestinian state based on the indefensible armistice lines.
The dire consequences could include terrorists operating from within our heartland, closure of Ben Gurion airport and extension of tunnels even into Tel Aviv. The majority of Israelis has no wish to rule over Palestinians and yearn to disengage from them. The Israeli government cannot, as of now, gamble on a Palestinian state without total demilitarization and defensible borders.
Of course we prefer Mahmoud Abbas who makes soothing remarks about peace rather than Khaled Mashaal or Mohammed Dief who openly exhort their followers to murder us. But we should not delude ourselves. Aside from a few statements, Abbas has never been a partner for peace.
His tactic is to make no concessions whilst demanding unilateral concessions — in order to dismantle Israel in stages. His end goal parallels that of Hamas. Incitement against Israel saturates the PA controlled media, the mosques and schools where children from an early age are brainwashed with the culture of death in which martyrdom is sanctified as the greatest spiritual objective.
