It’s impossible to understand how this can be considered a victory for Hamas. Perhaps posturing like this important internally, but it is impossible for the casual outside observer to believe there is any connection between their words and reality in this instance. Perhaps they do not care what people in the West think. But perhaps they do not understand that posturing is not part of Western culture and that their ability to influence people in the West is undercut by posturing which is inconsistent with objective facts. Is this something influenced by Iran (who supplied some of the missiles)? Because the Iranians also seem to be given to unrealistic posturing. In the West, it is often the case that the less a potential adversary says, the more dangerous the potential adversary may be. Thus, the adage: “Speak softly and carry a big stick.”

“Victory” indeed, as opposed to victory.

Hamas’ claptrap is becoming increasingly pathetic.
Sadly, it’s not the only group of delusional and murderous people ruling over a helpless population.

Real leaders are measured by their ability to improve the situation of the people they rule. On this scale, Hamas gets an F.

Palestinians deserve a productive leadership that can work for them, and talk to others in a sensible manner. In this sense, all Hamas is capable of doing is foam at the mouth.
