Hamas Getting Real?
The thugs of Hamas are trying to create the impression that they’re a real army, with a “probe” that’s supposed to ‘unveil military failings over Gaza’.
LONDON (AFP) – Hamas has launched a probe which is expected to be extremely critical of the failures of its military wing during the recent Gaza offensive, the respected Jane’s Defence Weekly magazine said Monday.
Citing an unnamed top Hamas military commander, Jane’s said a full report due soon would be critical of almost every decision taken by battlefield commanders during the 22-day assault, which ended last week.
The source quoted by Jane’s added that Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal and his followers had effectively pushed for a conflict that it was not ready for. The report will highlight the losses of interior minister Said Siam and around 50 of Hamas’s top explosives experts as among the most significant.
In a way, this is progress; Arab states normally react to military defeats by denying everything, covering up the failures, and proclaiming glorious victory. If Hamas actually starts being honest with themselves, Israel could be in serious trouble.
