On Israel and Hamas
In light of dramatic developments unfolding in Gaza – Israel’s military offensive in response to numerous rocket attacks – we are posting an essay from Orbis, Winter 2013, in advance of publication. Entitled “Israel and Hamas: Is War Imminent?,” the essay offers in-depth analysis into the various influences on Hamas and what might be done to avert a war between Hamas and Israel or an escalation to a regional war. It may not be too late to take this constructive article into account; hence, our decision to post it in advance of publication. The author, Boaz Granor, is Executive Director of the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism at the Interdisciplinary Center, Herzilya, Israel.
