ABSTRACT
The article compares Israel's 2006 war on Hizbullah in Lebanon with its 2009 attack on Hamas in Gaza. Citing planning, preparation, intelligence gathering, the strength of support for Israel's enemies, terrain, and border conditions, the author argues that the outcome of Israel's armed conflict with Hamas may be more favorable to Israel than was its conflict with Hizbullah. The author also notes, however, that Israel's 2006 conflict with Hizbullah created a deterrent to further rocket attacks.
