The looming ground assault on Rafah will signal the end of Hamas as a coherent army.
It's also the end of Hamas as a government anywhere.
It's Iran's first time being decisively rolled back anywhere.
And it's a military victory for a Western country.
All of these things contribute to the increasingly desperate calls for Israel not to send in troops.
Not to evacuate civilians in order to execute it either.
Just not
Israel please, please do not win.
Anything but that.
