Palestinians Becoming Disillusioned With Hamas…?

(hat tip ‘Infidels Are Cool’)

Check out this story from the Jerusalem Post – do I spy a tiny, tiny glimmer of  hope on the horizon…? Er, no. Because of course, rival group Fatah also deny Israel’s right to exist. And the good old Palestinian Authority is no better. It seems to spend most of its time teaching four year old kids that ‘killing jews is a religious duty’. Niiiice…

Jerusalem Post:

Hamas support among Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza is waning, according to a survey conducted by the Palestinian Jerusalem Media and Communications Center (JMCC).

According to the results of the poll published Monday, 18.8 percent of the Palestinian population backs the Islamist group, compared to 27% when the last JMCC survey was conducted in January.

The survey of 1,199 people also showed that 35% of Palestinians support Fatah, a nine percent rise compared with the previous survey.

23% said Hamas was responsible for the breakdown in Hamas/Fatah talks,  and 15% blamed Fatah.

Khader Khader, head of the JMCC media unit, said Hamas’s popularity was hit by disgruntlement among Gaza residents over a lack of a deal in Egyptian-mediated reconciliation talks and the continued blockade of the territory.

“It’s a sort of protest by the people (of Gaza) because there is no progress on these two major issues,” Khader was quoted by Reuters as saying.
