Having failed to defeat Israel, the uncivilized and backward Arabian culture claims they are victorious. If victory to them means their murderous leaders have been assassinated so that Israelis may live in peace, then I, like Mark Regev, wish them many more similar victories. From Hamas Declares Victory in Gaza Fighting:
Following five days of combat that left at least 117 Palestinians and three Israelis dead, Hamas declared victory and held a celebratory rally in Gaza City. "I wish them many more such victories," said Mark Regev, spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Olmert. "I have no doubt that the incursion... succeeded in hurting the Hamas military machine. I also have no illusions that it's over." Israel has accused Hamas of intentionally choosing to store and launch its rockets in heavily populated areas, turning civilians into human shields.
