Hamas, however, was adamant in its attention to re-arm. "Do whatever you want. Manufacturing the holy weapons is our mission and we know how to acquire weapons," Abu Ubaida, a spokesman for Hamas's armed wing, told a news conference Monday.

The Israeli actions have certainly bought a period of much needed relief for Israeli citizens within rocket reach. Surely the capability of Hamas has been greatly reduced.
But non-Muslims have been betrayed all over the world with vast swathes of the media unquestioningly adopting the Palestinian propaganda which has so shamelessly taken the place of actual "News"
One would think it would be obvious to EVERYBODY! The BBC, for example, reported the "war" almost exclusively by parading dead and injured CHILDREN in front of the camera. I think I might have seen ONE adult male with a bloody head. No, we just were given images of dead/injured KIDS; the occasional shot of a grieving Palestinian parent; and shots of Israeli soldiers. So we get on one side: Dead/bleeding kids, grieving parents, mass scenes of distruction.On the other: Israeli soldiers. One would think that the war was between children and adult male Israeli soldiers. We certainly were not told much of anything about Hamas soldiers. For the most part, the only "combatants" that got media attention were the Israeli soldiers. In fact, they were pretty much the only ADULTS covered at all.
No conflict in history has been covered in such a blatant propagandist way.
And, just as so much of the media unquestioningly published Hamas propaganda, even down to acceptance of the casualty figures fed to them, so also the aid agencies and human rights oranisations have primarily been perveyors of Hamas propaganda - from inside their own organisations to outside of them.
