1. Bonkers or what
Sammy ,   Newcastle   (05.13.17)
Are Hamas implying there are 2 separate Palestines? 2 separate Palestinian Peoples one in Gaza and the other in the West Bank?

Or are they implying that Palestinians under Hamas are more Palestinian than Palestinians under Fatah?

Are they seriously implying that there can be any meaningful progress toward Palestinian Statehood with 2 Palestines Palestine 1 in Gaza under Hamas and Palestine 2 in the West Bank under Fatah operating entirely independently, at odds and in competition?

And what use would any Peace Process be if say the Palestine 1 agreeing a settlement with Israel while the Palestine 2 left out in the cold to continue the conflict? A bizarre bonkers situation of a Half Peace Half War that's probably even worse than the status quo

Without Palestinian UNITY there is absolutely NO CHANCE of resolution

Hamas know this but relinquishing their grip on power and resources in Gaza is something they will not do even if it is for the greater good

Because it does not serve the greed and corruption of Hama-ist elite to do so
2. This is hilarious. Pre selected winners is called elections.
