Hamas proves a point the hard way

The Washington Post reports the screaming obvious: after wars, bombardment and blockade, Palestinian resistance has won the day (despite huge costs for the people themselves):

A top Israeli security official said there has been a frustrated acknowledgment in Israeli intelligence and military circles that, as it stands, there is no obvious alternative to continued Hamas rule in Gaza. The Palestinian Authority is not strong enough to return to power there, Israel does not want to reoccupy an area it vacated in 2005, and there is concern that any collapse of Hamas rule might increase the influence of even more militant groups.
