Hmmm, Israel failed?? Israel's objective was to stop your rockets. If they don't stop, all it means is that the lying Hamas didn't keep its word about upholding the ceasefire. Israel may then have to teach you some more painful lessons, but the rocket fire will stop, either way.

It depends on what you mean by "failure." His country is still in the same position of being able to carry out acts of agression against Israel, so in some sense he's right.

I hate to say this but he appears to be correct.

Israel's stated goal was to put an end to the daily rocket attacks, the ceasefire does not appear to have accomplished that.

Unfortunately fo Israel, these choleras did come out as winners at least in appearance.

The IAF, one of the best Air forces in the world, if not the best, wasn't able to finish the job in about a week of non-stop bombardment of Gaza.

On the contrary, these choleras were able to fire salvos of missiles almost up to the time of truce kicking in, and worse, they were able to fire missiles as far as Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

Sorry, but sad to say, i'd call this, Hamas 1, Israel 0

Its a real adventure when rockets are raining down on your population. Hamas is like the toilet seat that wont lift up.

I just heard on the news that rockets are still being fired into Israel. Why isn't the IAF responding in kind? And why did Israel agree to opening up all borders? I guess Hamas can just march the arms in from Egypt now since they no longer have the tunnel, and the newly elected prez of Egypt comes out smelling like a rose!

Yeh your so right we failed. We only managed to destroy 90% of your rocket launchers, rockets, buildings, terrosrist infrastructure and most of your terrorist masterminds. The other 10% will finish off in due course. Netanyahu finish the job!

This brainless bedouin reminds me of the Monty Python film where Arthur king of the Britons confronts a soldier and cuts off his arms and legs with a sword and,with thr soldier shlepping his torso on the ground tells the king " its a mere flesh wound, come on, fight yoy coward" arabs don't know when they're dead and buried.

The Arabs always talk a good game but whenever it comes down to actual fighting, they're weak as lillies. Israel would have knocked Hamas into next week if it was not concerned with civilian casualties and bad press.
