Video: The Importance of an Israeli Victory Against Hamas for the West

[Sky News] Dore Gold - Israel sees that its cities have been hit for seven years by the rockets of Hamas and other organizations in the Gaza Strip and it now wants Hamas to make a firm undertaking that they're not going to fire rockets at Israel. As long as it takes to get that undertaking, Israel will continue with this military operation. If Israel is perceived as not securing a victory that is bringing about an end to rocket attacks against Israel, that is not just a problem for Israel. Hamas is the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. That will hearten and embolden radical Islamic organizations in Egypt, in Jordan, and even in Europe. Therefore, denying Hamas its military goal of having the right of armed resistance against Israel by hitting Israeli civilians, that victory is essential for Israel and it is also essential for many of our allies abroad.
