IT CAN'T BE UNDERSTOOD AS GEOPOLITICAL STRATEGY...:

How to break Hamas's stranglehold on Gaza (David Ignatius, July 21, 2014, Washington Post)
  
What goal is Israel pursuing in its latest war in Gaza? That has been a hard question to answer, as Israel expanded its war aims from seeking "quiet" from Hamas rocket attacks to closing tunnels to destroying rocket-launch sites in northern Gaza.

The tragedy of this approach is that it brings death and destruction without a change in the status quo. 


...it's just domestic politics.
