Can Arabs in Gaza Revolt Against Hamas?

The voices emerging from the Gaza Strip are anguished and reflect the Palestinians' growing sense of disillusionment with Hamas. These voices, however, are still small in numbers.

These voices will grow only if the international community heeds them and calls out Hamas for its brutal crackdown on Palestinians.

The decision of six Arab states to attend the Bahrain conference despite the Palestinian boycott call shows that the Arabs have chosen to endorse a new direction – one that will leave the Palestinians to fend for themselves in a hell of their own making.
