From a private source inside Gaza. The Israelis effectively immobilized Hamas on the first day. The rest is mopping up. Everyone is huddled in
front of their TV and radio hoping for news it’s over soon.
Iran has been trying to establish a surrogate regime with Hamas a front meant to fight a proxy war with Israel. More showmanship to attract
allegiance with Muslims worldwide than a desire to engage Israel in a real war.
While Iranian children go hungry, untold millions, likely billions by now, have gone to supplying Hamas leaders with Russian bought weapons. The
Russians are laughing, because Iranians are getting mostly out-of-date and faulty equipment (same with their nuclear technology). Hamas leaders are
able to siphon for themselves a fortune with Iranians supplying the goods for war and the West, particularly the EU, sending them vast amounts of
money to be at permanent war with Israel.
Hamas is handed a country supposedly occupied by Israel that Egypt refuses to take back. Hamas leaders don't like paperwork and distributing money
for schools, agriculture, manufacturing. There's no immediate profit for them in that. Israel supplies food and power and only asks not to be
shelled. Hamas knows that peace means they just control a failing state that even oil rich Arabs hate.
The Palestinians, who were given a country for themselves in 1948, it's called Jordan, but decided they, wanted a second and third Palestinian state
carved out of Israel. We see what they manage themselves now.
