Assad: Hamas defeated Israel in Gaza
I am always amazed at how well we spin the "truth" in the Middle East. This is a whopper.

Syrian President Bashar Assad met Saturday with Hamas leaders, headed by the group's Politburo Chief Khaled Mashaal, and congratulated the Palestinian people for the "resistance victory in Gaza."
According to a report by Syrian news agency Sana, Mashaal told Assad that "Syria is a partner in the victory achieved by the Palestinian people." The Syrian leader stressed that Israel failed in securing its objectives during Operation Cast Lead, which he characterized as "the violent activity in Gaza," even though the IDF used the most lethal weapons.
