THE RECENT war in Gaza was the third in seven years. Hamas has not collapsed and the price it exacts from Israel gets higher from round to round.It is an asymmetrical struggle in which the weaker party, Hamas, makes gains simply by hurting the stronger party and eroding its self-image. It’s not the fundamental balance of power that counts, but rather the relative achievements of the weaker party that determine the outcome.
