As Israel engages Hamas in yet another round of vicious warfare, many, if not most, in Israel would argue that the withdrawal from Gaza a decade ago was a terrible blunder.

In the interim, Hamas took over the Gaza Strip and the rocket attacks only increased in severity and range, disrupting the country’s normal routine by driving millions of Israeli civilians into the shelters, at any time of Hamas’s choosing. This is an unquestionably intolerable situation that neither Israel nor any other country could be expected to live with.
