Backlash begins as Israel split over success of war in Gaza

From Times On Line A day after the last of their country's soldiers pulled out of the Gaza, Israelis are increasingly asking themselves just what they were fighting for.

Despite Gaza Attacks, Hamas Thinks It Has the Upper Hand

From Time.Com Israel says its military offensive in Gaza has dealt Hamas a heavy blow, but that's not how the leaders of the radical Palestinian group see it.
