Hamas has been holding "victory" rallies across the devastated Gaza Strip today despite having lost every battle, gained no strategic advantage, and suffered thousands of casualties.
Meanwhile, the local coffee-stand guy sees the simple reality behind the rhetoric:
But the owner of a coffee stand located near the Gaza City rally criticized the festivities, given the steep Palestinian death toll.
"We can't talk about real victory because there were thousands of martyrs and we didn't liberate anything," said Jawdat Abu Nahel. "It's no time for a parade."
I agree with Jawdat.
