Ha'aretz also interesting commentary by Gideon Levy,
"The neighborhood bully strikes again"
I think his most crucial comment is:
"For two and a half years, they have been caged and ostracized by the
whole world. The line of thinking that states that through war we will
gain new allies in the Strip; that abusing the population and killing its
sons will sear this into their consciousness; and that a military
operation would suffice in toppling an entrenched regime and thus replace
it with another one friendlier to us is no more than lunacy."
"Hezbollah was not weakened as a result of the Second Lebanon War; to the
contrary. Hamas will not be weakened due to the Gaza war; to the
contrary. In a short time, after the parade of corpses and wounded ends,
we will arrive at a fresh cease-fire, as occurred after Lebanon, exactly
like the one that could have been forged without this superfluous war."
