Math Obviously Isn't Their Strong Suit

Hamas' three-month long ceasefire with Israel is now officially ending, or as they put it, in the "dead stage".
Abu Obayda , the spokesman of Al-Qassam Brigades confirmed today that the declared ceasefire with the occupation forces is now in its dead stage and it will surely end under the continuous aggression in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
If the ceasefire is in the "dead stage", it makes those who possess a brain wonder what a "living" ceasefire is because the term seems to have the opposite meaning for them (from late December):
Since ceasefire began a month ago, Palestinian gunmen launched more Qassams than months when there was no calm.
So now that this "ceasefire" is in its death throes, Hamas will predictably increase attacks upon Israel. But is that such a good idea for the Palestinians, in general? According to their own tally, the Palestinians suffer four to five times the rate of deaths, six to seven times the number of wounded, and ten to eleven thousand times more captives than Israel incurs.

And since Israel's population is nearly double the Palestinian population, it seems like their move for more "resistance" is not a very bright one. But, then again, Palestinians have never been known for being very bright.
