Thread:
People keep asking me why is #Israel negotiating with #Hamas. While Israel refuses to confirm its negotiating with the terrorist organization the reality on the ground suggests otherwise. Here are my thoughts on the subject. 1. The @netanyahu government doesn’t want another war with Gaza, Unless it will fundamentally change something on the ground. It appears that the leaders don’t believe that change will come from war.

After a long day on Twitter here are my thoughts about the #GazaReturnMarch - Hamas cynically picked today as the peak of the demonstrations for one purpose - to restore international involvement in Gaza for the plight of the peoples dire situation. Hamas in the past tried to gain this attention by launching rockets, attack tunnels and abduction. While those are still on the table, the new strategy is the border confrontations.
