Hamas’s Victory: How Muslims See It

It hard to imagine that at least some of Israel's leaders do not understand the Muslim mindset.

It hard to imagine that at least some of Israel’s leaders do not understand this Muslim mindset. That notion makes it even more difficult to understand why Israel stopped short of victory, unless Israel might possibly have decided to weaken Iran’s ally, Hamas, to such an extent that it could then address the Iranian problem without worrying about an attack from Gaza.

Until the early 1970s, the Israelis seem to have understood their enemy’s view of war; do they now? Being farther away, the Americans have had less of a need to do so. Will America ever understand the Muslim world they way it sees itself and make policy decisions more appropriate to, and in line with, that view? If America and Israel choose not to, they embolden their enemies, but do so at their peril.
