National Catholic Reporter;1/23/2009, Vol. 45 Issue 7, p15
The author reflects on the Hamas, the Islamic Resistance Movement in Israel. He states that the group's rocket attacks had not killed anybody since their weapons were said to be powerless and they do not have airplanes and tanks. He adds that Hamas is not a threat to the existence of Israel. The author notes that Hamas respect the negotiated cease-fire except if Israel will use it as a cover to make assassination attempts. He adds that Israel should make the first move to end the conflict.
