The Cossack Catches the Tartar and the Tartar Holds the Cossack by the Neck (Polish rhymed proverb)

By William Markiewicz

Israel and Hamas agreed to a twelve day truce in Gaza and Hamas broke the truce. Whatever happens, the world sees the US as Israel's unconditional ally, and for the Arab world Hamas will remain a national hero. Politics and History obey psychology, and Hamas’ Khaled Meshaal has outsmarted Netanyahu. Israel will not stop the mess by killing and counter killing, but only by totally quitting Gaza and the West Bank. Why are they more dangerous for Israel than the rest of the Arab and Islamic World? Israel has no right to be their hegemon.
