    If Hamas is still in control then no. If they are voted out then yes.
    This isn't fair, at least as long as the only alternative is a bumbling kiss ass.

    Israel failed to take out Hamas, but I'm holding on to hope that positive action will come from this.

    Failure. Israel neither eliminated Hamas nor eliminated their ability to attack Israel. Further, they had no impact on altering Hamas' position on the existence of Israel.

    It was in many ways a victory for Hamas.

    Hamas is cashing in on the destruction by the invasion, pledging "$52 million of the group's funds to help repair lives".

    "We are in control and we are the winner," Hamas legislator Mushir al-Masri declared this week, after attending the funeral of four Hamas gunmen.

    While Hamas lost a lot of fighters and had its infrastructure severely damaged, it is already rebuilding its infrastructure and is sure to gain many recruitments out of its eventual spike in popular opinion due to its assistance to the Gazan people in rebuilding.

    What did Israel gain out of it? Not much, really. Hamas will consolidate its control over Gaza with the popularity it will gain; the tunnels will be rebuilt; rocket attacks will continue inevitably, as well as suicide bombings. I can't really see how this was beneficial to Israel at all, aside from temporarily damaging Hamas organizationally and infrastructurally.

    It was a failure. Israel pulled out without finishing the job of completely eliminating Hamas from Gaza.
