67. I don't know, and neither do you

 

What I do know is that the Gilad Shalit affair taught Hamas that a soldier - alive or dead - does more for their gain than any number of Israeli civilians slain.

Do you think hamas believes all the rockets they fire is going to do something? They keep track of this stuff same as anyone else would, they know the bulk of what they fire is shot down. But each time a rocket is shot down, Israel is out $23,000. Hamas is down $5 - sugar, quicklime, and one of the chunks of pipe all of Israel's bombing has dug up.

I think those 13 were going to go for a valuable target of some sort. Just like the ones in the video I mentioned upthread who targeted a military post (which I will not post for the graphic content it contains - look up "secret filming Hamas" on youtube if you want your stomach to lurch a bit.)

We're not looking at the Hamas of 2002 here, I don't think.
