Israel has won the tunnel war, but lost the propaganda battle to Hamas (Con Coughlin, 08 Aug 2014, The Telegraph)
Posted by Orrin Judd at August 8, 2014 8:15 PMTo judge by the general tenor of global reaction to the conflict, it would be fair to conclude that while Israel has unquestionably won the military campaign - it has completely destroyed the tunnel network as well as killed an estimated 900 Hamas militants - it stands precious little chance of winning the propaganda war.On that front, Hamas is the undisputed winner. The resignation of Baroness Warsi as a junior Foreign Office minister this week is the most high-profile example of the deep antipathy that has been generated around the world over what is regarded as Israel's immoral conduct.
