Quotes-start.png "It was Hamas, not Israel, that provoked war by breaking a cease-fire. And it was Hamas, not Israel, whose refusal to accept the other's right to exist created an intractable barrier to meaningful negotiation. All true. But the notion that Hamas could be bombed into sensibility is a little hard to imagine. The more likely reality is that the fallout of this bombing campaign is hardening the resolve of the militants that survive it, while generating international outrage at Israel's heavy-handedness."
