World Politics Review;11/26/2012, p1
The article examines the implications of Israel's re-establishment of its deterrent against Hamas in Gaza. It sees the exchange of rocket fire and air strikes between Israel and Hamas that ended in cease-fire in November 2012 as a demonstration of Israel's willingness to escalate hostilities regardless of international criticism and pressure. A discussion of the strategic and moral implications of Israel's re-established deterrence is presented.
