Hamas: Halutz resignation a win for armed struggle

IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Dan Halutz resigned not only because of the failures in the Lebanon war, but also over the situation in the Gaza Strip, Abu Obaidah, spokesman for Hamas's armed wing said Wednesday. "Halutz couldn't bring Gilad Shalit home or stop the rocket," Abu Obaidah told Israel Radio. "[His resignation] proves that a military solution is useless, that Israel has failed." Abu Obaidah proclaimed that armed resistance had "won."
