The work is unfinished

'A spokesman for Hamas' military wing, Abu Ubaida, said its rocket capabilities had not been affected by the conflict.

"We hereby stress that our rockets are being developed and are piling up, and that the enemy will receive more rockets and God willing, our rockets will hit more targets," he said in a news conference broadcast live on Hamas' al-Aqsa TV.'

I hoped, as did millions around the world, that Israel would carry on until Hamas was a dark smudge on the ground. Hard to do, but essential. How many parallels will Hamas draw with Hezbollah in 2006? A lot. How many parallels will Israeli voters make with the same event? We'll see.

I'm thinking Netanyahu will be the next Israeli PM.
