Jonathan Tobin: Any Gaza Peace Deal Won't Last

If a peace deal is hammered out between Israel and Hamas, it won't last, says Jonathan Tobin, columnist and senior online editor of Commentary Magazine.

"[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu clearly doesn't want an all-out war with Hamas in Gaza. The price would be very high. No democratic leader wants to contemplate that, to lose hundreds of more boys and to have months more fighting,'' Tobin said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"But if that deal goes through, you can take it to the bank that we're going to be back here discussing the same kind of fighting a year or two years from now. Hamas will rearm, they will reinforce, they'll dig more tunnels.

"Israel will do its best to try and stop it. We'll pretend that that's happening, but it's not going to stop it. As long as Hamas is in power . . . and as long as it's not disarmed, they still win on a certain level.''
