Will Israel succeed at dismantling Hamas? Lebanon’s Hamas representative says nah
By Ethan Huff // Jan 09, 2024

Israel's scorched earth war campaign in Gaza may not end up being a success, at least according to Osama Hamdan, the official Hamas representative in Lebanon.

At a recent crowded news conference in his offices located within Beirut's southern suburbs, Hamdan expressed no concern about Israel dislodging his Palestinian faction from the Gaza Strip, all things considered.

"We are not worried about the future of the Gaza Strip," Hamdan told reporters. "The decision maker is the Palestinian people alone."

Since the beginning of the war on October 7 following the Hamas attack, Israel has stated that one of its key missions is to dismantle the Hamas government in Gaza and absorb the Palestinian territory into Israel's borders.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly emphasized, despite mounting international pressure to scale back, that Israel, in his view, has a mandate to basically recapture the land of Gaza and return it to Israel. Netanyahu has repeatedly cited Old Testament scriptures to back this mandate.

Nearly every nation in the world, including the United States, is in some way urging Israel to engage a ceasefire. The Biden regime supports Israel in its ongoing war campaign, but it, too, has dispatched senior envoys to Israel to try to convince the nation's government to focus more on targeted operations in Gaza rather than full-scale destruction of the Palestinian territory.

Is it even possible to fully eradicate Hamas?

It would seem as though Israel is standing mostly alone right now in its intended mission as the rest of the world watches in horror as women and children get slaughtered along with Hamas militants.

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have reportedly inflicted a lot of collateral damage in Gaza, claiming that large-scale bombings of residential areas are necessary to root out Hamas militants who are allegedly hiding in homes, hospitals, libraries and other areas where civilians live and go about their lives.

One former Israeli national security adviser has spoken out against Israel's plan for Gaza, calling it "vague." French President Emmanuel Macron is also skeptical about what Israel is doing, and has urged the Jewish state to reveal in-depth what its endgame is for Gaza.

"I think that we have reached a moment when the Israeli authorities will have to define more clearly what their final objective is," Macron said. "The total destruction of Hamas? Does anybody think that's possible? If it's that, the war will last 10 years."

First created in 1987 by the then-government of Israel itself, Hamas, which means "to do violence" in Hebrew, has survived repeated attempts by Israel's post-1987 governments to take it down. This is not a surprise when considering that Hamas was designed to absorb such contingencies.

The other problem Israel faces is the threat of Hamas growing even more powerful through the radicalization of more Palestinians. As Israel continues its crusade in Gaza, the death toll is mounting and many people are angry, including Palestinians whose family members are dying at the hands of IDF.

As Palestinian anger reaches a boiling point, Israel will face increasing radicalization from Palestinian civilians who may end up joining Hamas to fight back against Israel.

The ideology backing Hamas stipulates that any form of Israeli control over lands that the Palestinians consider to be theirs must be opposed by force. It is much the same as the ideology of Israel, which is right now attempting to take back by force the lands that Jewish Zionists believe belongs to them in accordance with God's promise to Abraham.
