Confilct w/in Hamas
By Micah Halpern
Wednesday February 26, 2020
Hamas has announced that they have completed their attack against Israel. Thatís not an easy thing for Hamas to say.
Hamas is stuck between the proverbial rock and the hard place. They are stuck between two very different points of view and approaches.
On the one hand, Hamas defines itself as being about defense and fighting Israel. Hamasí message has always been that they are non-stop fighters against Israel.
On the other hand, Hamas governs Gaza and they need to maintain calm. Calm is defined by a society that can function. Hamas knows that as a government, they cannot tolerate ongoing regular targeting by the Israeli air-force.
That means that a cease fire and quiet becomes an essential objective. Even though a cease fire and quiet with Israel is in direct conflict with Hamasí role as fighters and defenders of Gaza.
Hamas needs to embrace the ceasefire. They might just do it. Their self-preservation is at stake.
