... like anybody's actually surprsed. But, when the guys lobbing the rockets into Israel brag about their uncompromising operations against the "corrupt peoples," it puts the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into a different light.
This has been a long time coming. But the end game is abundantly clear:
a) Mahmoud Abbas wins the Palestinian civil war and these asshats are all dead
b) the asshats win the civil war, and the Hammer of God comes down hard on Gaza and roots them out house by house.
So, why pursue such a stupid long-term strategy? The same assumption that the jihadis have been operating under since the 70s, often correctly: that their opponents are too corrupt and weak to fight back effectively.
