It seemed a new chapter in the long, tragic, bloody story of the Gaza Wars. Israeli air strikes versus rockets originated from the Gaza Strip, after Obama’s (re)election and before another Israeli early election round. It seemed as if the clock turned back to December, 2008, to a well known sequence of events: an Israeli raid deep inside the Gaza Strip, a rocket barrage to the southern Israeli communities, targeted killings against Palestinian militants, and then the war. An ugly war.
It seemed again to be the same old story, but this time is different. This is the first Gaza War in the era of the Second Arab Awakening, as the strong message sent by the new Arab governments to Israel, the United States and Europe indicates. Ten among the most important Arab countries’ foreign ministers were at Rafah border, on November, 20th, to visit Gaza, pay respect to the dead and the injured, and recognize Hamas’ role in the region.
April 27, 2012"Overall, this is a valuable work that sheds light on an important player in Palestinian politics, and provides a sober and judicious account of a movement that is all too often misunderstood."
