Weekly Commentary: Hamas Cannot Be Moderated By Economic Improvement -
Policy Ramifications
Dr. Aaron Lerner 22 August, 2019

A key goal of Hamas is to destroy Israel.

This is reflected by the fact that the Hamas regimes has consistently opted
to devote its resources on “guns” rather than “butter”.

They give priority to building attack tunnels over building housing.

And their massive engagement in weapons production serves to drive
restrictions on the supply of dual use material.

Any politician suggesting that programs to improve the economic situation in
Gaza will change this is either clueless or cynical.

Why cynical?

Because while Hamas does indeed want to destroy the Jewish State it has

It could very well be that the implementation of projects and policies which
facilitate the acceleration of Hamas’ preparation for war will bring
temporary quiet.

The same kind of quiet these same politicians typically brag about when they
talk about Lebanon. Yes, Lebanon. Home to over a hundred thousand
missiles – which are now being upgraded – all thanks to the “quiet”.

To be clear, this is not to say that we shouldn’t seek ways to improve the
situation in the Gaza Strip.

Just that we must not deceive ourselves that such a development would
address the threat that Hamas represents.
