I’ve heard numerous allegations that Israel’s 20-some day war in Gaza is meant to disarm Hamas to prevent firing of more rockets into Israel.

Colonel Herzi, a representative of the Israeli military, characterized the war on Gaza as successful.

He also said, “[Hamas] know today that they have a problem. Will they put down their weapons forever? For sure, no, but I think they have learned a lesson from this war.”
Oh, so now the objective was to teach them a lesson? Give me a break.
(From this article in the New York Times.)

    So I was listening to the radio and they were talking about how Israel offered large sums of money, pieces of land for peace but Hamas would not take anything. Hamas will not be satisfied with anything except the destruction of Israel according to their website?.So they keep attacking Israel and what is Israel suppose to do? Sit and wait for UN (which never really helps)? Try negotiate? They did but nothing really worked.anyways, this is what I understand about it from my very very limited knowledge of politics, economics, or just anything government related.

    What I wanted to communicate in this post was how utterly ridiculous it was for Israel to say that they had won the war- when their initial objective was to stop Hamas from firing rockets at them anymore.Israel’s own officers are admitting that Hamas will likely attack them again- and yet, the Israeli army wants to claim victory?(a blog on “who won?” is here: http://inthefield.blogs.cnn.com/2009/01/19/who-won-in-gaza/)Both Israel and Hamas need to holster their weapons for good… there are too many civilian lives at stake.
