While the article does attempt to back up this headline with the claim that "But Hamas officials and analysts said Monday that the organization  would actually like Israel to launch a ground operation; it hopes  this would let it inflict such heavy losses on Israeli tanks and  infantry that Israel would flee with its tail between its legs.," the basic thrust of this headline is right in line with the similar nonsense about how "Cuba really welcomes the U.S. blockade because it gives them an excuse for problems" or about how "Hamas really wants to prolong the war with Israel because it's what keeps them in power," etc. NO! What Hamas "is hoping for" is for ISRAEL TO STOP THEIR OPPRESSION OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE, just like what Cuba is "hoping for" is for the U.S. to stop the blockade and cease their 50-year economic (and shooting and terrorist) war against them.
