“We didn’t Plan to Bring Hamas to its Knees”

DM Ehud Barak told Israel Army Radio Thursday morning that operation Pillar of Defense was not intended to make Hamas collapse. “Only a ground assault to occupy Gaza would bring Hamas to its knees, but we felt the price of such an option made it unwise. I tell anyone fantasizing about an Israel-occupied Gaza to go on dreaming.” (Walla)
