If they hold a 'victory rally' does it mean they won?While threatening to resume the war when a 72-hour cease fire runs out on Friday morning, Hamas held a 'victory rally' in Gaza City on Thursday.
Let's go to the videotape.
Obviously, Hamas is trying to distract their people from the reality of the destruction of Gaza.
But the reality is much different than Hamas is portraying it. Let's go to the videotape.
One of the main speakers, Hamas spokesman Mushir Al-Masri, urged the Palestinian representatives in Egypt - "don't come back without our conditions and demands. Work to get them with all of your might, in spite of the occupation."
The demonstration was organized by Hamas as a part of its psychological warfare and its attempt to create the impression it won the battle, much like former prime minister Ismail Haniyeh's speech on Tuesday.
Al-Masri continued hurling threats at Israel, after Hamas officials said there was no agreement to extend the ceasefire on Wednesday evening.
"We support the resistance, we support the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, we support more firing at Tel Aviv and we support the tunnels," he said.
He was photographed saluting the "resistance" and clarified: "The war is not over yet."
Does that look like the side that won the war?
