You posted: "Give Pals their lives back and Hamas will no longer have a hold over them." There is a missing link in your argument; namely, the Palestinians democratically voted Hamas into government because of the corrupt, quisling routine of Fatah. Then Fatah, with the help of the zionists both in Washington and Tel Aviv, armed Fatah to rout this democratically elected Hamasgovernment. Hamas reacted in an attempt to clean up this mess. The Fatah 'leadership' escaped Gaza, leaving their own rank-and-file hanging. Hamas has 'no hold' over the intelligent and proud Palestinian people. Rather, Hamas is their own government, which they will continue to support. There is no possibility of Hamas exiting the scene; not through targeted assassinations, starvation or any of the usual zionist tactics. Hamas is the Palestinian people's choice, and for every act of oppression and/or act of buy-off, there will be more and more and more Hamas supporters. Such is the current zionist dilemna.
