>  THE DISTINGUISHING feature of the latest war between Israel and Hamas is “offensive tunnels,” as the Israeli army calls them.  As of early Wednesday, 28 had been uncovered in Gaza, and nearly half extend into Israel, according to Israeli officials.

>  The depravity of Hamas’s strategy seems lost on much of the outside world, which — following the terrorists’ script — blames Israel for the civilian casualties it inflicts while attempting to destroy the tunnels.

>  Polls show that they [most of Gaza’s population] are fed up with Hamas’s rule and with its use of women and children as cannon fodder in unwinnable wars with Israel.  The next government of Gaza should be one that invests in schools, health clinics and houses, not in tunnels.
