    For sure.

    No successful national leadership in history has acted out of fairness to other entities, and I salute them for that, because they would be crushed by unfair nations in a heartbeat.

    And if someone thinks Hamas is playing the smart angle by firing rockets randomly into a much more militarily powerful neighbor, then I salute them, because ignorance is bliss.

    Hamas are playing no angle, they are only reacting.
    During the 6 months ceasefire, Israel was supposed to lift the blockade. It did not.

    I understand the blockade. I did state the ultra orthodox rulers of Israel didn't handle the situation in the most just manner. Nonetheless, Hamas was given large amounts of financial help to revive Gaza. They didn't buy their people food or anything else they would have needed. The way Hamas proceeded with the funds, leads me to believe their goal was never to help the Palestinian people.

    While Israel wasn't fair, Hamas is still mostly to blame.
    O right.

    Like I said, it's not about fair. Would you do what Hamas is doing if you wanted the best for your people?

    You did not consider the choices they have. They had only one.

    Did it work when they fought the militarily superior foe? No, it increased their slaughter, and the general animosity toward them. http://query.nytimes.com/mem/archive...B7668382669FDE

    They could either fight -even if symbolically- or surrender. They surrendered; they lost, they faded.

    They fought first, for decades.
