Fatah Wants Egypt to Overthrow Hamas

"The Egyptians are strangling the Gaza Strip." — Fawzi Barhoum, spokesman for Hamas.

But even if Egypt’s tough security measures and blockade eventually bring down Hamas, it is not clear if Palestinians in the Gaza Strip will take to the streets to welcome Abbas and Fatah. Hamas, after all, continues to enjoy strong support among the Gaza Strip’s population. Moreover, there is good reason to believe that Hamas’s powerful armed wing and security apparatus would fight to the last man to stop Fatah from regaining control over their mini Islamist entity.

    PLEASE DO! Hamas has been nothing but a liability, especially to the 1.7 million citizens of Gaza, with their paranoid and xenophobic policies. Get rid of Hamas, and maybe Kentucky Fried Chicken will open up for business in Gaza. Instead of it, being smuggled through tunnels, because no multinational corporation wants to set up business in Gaza.

  2. Yechiel Baum says:

    Hamas are origin: Egypt so it is time they are brought under Egyptian law and sovereignity.
