Israel wins and Hamas loses
Makkah, Mecca, July 24
To be clear, I have been pro-Palestinian since birth and love Palestine, says writer Zuhair al-Kutbi. However, it is now time to acknowledge Hamas’s mistakes in jeopardizing a whole nation to achieve partisan gains.Although Hamas felt victorious after the Schlalit swap deal, it needs to understand the power of the IDF. With primitive technology, Israel is capable of destroying Hamas. Hamas gave Israel the opportunity to destroy the infrastructure and achievements of the innocent Palestinian people. Israel didn’t spare a chance to kill children, women and old people, destroying whatever it could from homes and hospitals to police stations.
