• Assaf Sharon, a philosophy professor at the University of Tel Aviv and founder of the Center for the Renewal of Israeli Democracy, discusses the complex interplay between Israeli politics, security challenges, and populism in the wake of recent events. Talking to Reset DOC, he addresses the weakening of democratic values, the credibility of the Israeli government, and the prospects for a two-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    Hamas obviously thinks that if it wants to take over the Palestinian movement, it needs another sustained insurgency against Israeli occupation. Hamas is hoping to lure the Israeli military back into the interior of Gaza for the urban combat that favors insurgent groups. Hamas hopes a sustained insurgency can eventually result in a steady drip of killed and captured Israeli conscripts, allowing Hamas to claim that it alone is actively fighting for Palestine. What this means is that in trying to fulfill the pledge to “eliminate Hamas,” Israel could well deliver everything Hamas is counting on.

    Hamas’ truly unprecedented attack on Israel has multiple objectives. The first, most obvious and dramatically tangible in its casualty count and penetration capacity, is to dispel the myth of an unassailable “enemy.” Its second, and closely related goal, is to permanently undermine the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) leadership, now condemned to a delegitimizing immobility by its internal and external choices. Their third aim and certainly not their least, is to sabotage the understanding between Israel and Saudi Arabia, the true seal of the Abrahamic Accords, announced as imminent by Netanyahu.

    Vendors in the vicinity of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) supplement the distribution center in the Jabaliya refugee camp in the northern Gaza Strip, displaying the same goods Palestinian refugees receive from the UNRWA distribution centers. Many Palestinians receiving aid from UNRWA and other NGOs sell some or all of the aid in exchange for cash. These people have enough food but need money for daily expenses not covered by the aid provided to them. Recent United Nations report says Gaza could be “uninhabitable” in less than five years if current economic trends continue.
