I was laughed at, several years ago, when I said Hezbollah and Hamas ran the same pattern, but this has proved it yet again.
Hamas and Hezbollah are dedicated to exterminating every Jew in the world, and destroying Israel completely. These are their ONLY goals. Thus, when the populace begins to look for leaders who will provide these, Hamas goes back to the old standby. They attack Israel, until Israel finally returns fire. THEN they cry 'Victims' and start firing back on Israel, and convince the people they are 'protecting' them. How sad that they have nothing else. How very sad that the Palestinians actually keep falling for such idiocy.
