Friday 15 June 2007 Hamas took control of Gaza. The Arab League warned of a "disastrous outcome". Hamas won the parliamentary elections and formed a legitimate government. It was a day of major victories for Hamas and its backers in Iran and Syria. There is no doubt about what would happen over the coming months.
While Hamas is in control of Gaza and declaring Islamist rule on Israel's doorstep, the Palestinian quest for an independent state is on the verge of collapse. Fourteen years after the Oslo accords opened up the prospect of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza.
December ‘08 Hamas declared an end to a ceasefire with Israel, saying that the truce expiring on Friday will not be renewed.
The development lead to a violent new phase in the long conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants. After more than eight days of Israeli bombing and Hamas rocket launching in Gaza.
The invasion, to no one's surprise, did begin today.
