One of the first signs of Hamas gains in Judea and Samaria, due to the reconciliation between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, are the amount of Hamas flags that are being waved in PA controlled areas (or areas the PA controls at the moment) in Ramallah protests.
Hamas is planning to openly run in elections in the A-Naj-Ach University in Shechem, and that will be the first test of their popularity, according to a Makore Rishon report.
The University’s 20,000 students represent a cross-section of Arabs from Judea and Samaria. Hamas’s success there will be a good indication for Hamas success in general Palestinian Authority elections, if they ever have them again.
