Analysis: Iran's stake in the success of Hamas's 'resistance'
The Jerusalem Post / Jonathan Spyder

If something resembling the Egyptian
truce proposal (with improved measures to prevent smuggling) ends up
being implemented, and if Hamas fail to improve on their current poor
military showing, then the current round of fighting in Gaza is likely
to be remembered as constituting a limited setback for the Iranian
interest in the region. Of course, no truce is yet in sight, and a
further round of fighting in built-up areas may still lie ahead.
