When Hamas won the Palestinian elections I made the point that Hamas had to make a choice to either join the legitimate community of States by disavowing their history of terrorism and cutting ties with the “militant” wing of their party, or else they would be entering an effective state of war against Israel.

Well, it looks like Israel has reached that same conclusion.

Look for all the usual suspects to blame the current conflict on Israel, but as far as I’m concerned, Hamas is now learning a valuable and overdue lesson about political reality. If you run a country and your agents or agencies attack another country, don’t expect them to sit and take it.
