America finds itself supporting and funding the violent overthrow of a democratically elected government because they do not like the politics of the Hamas leaders. This has the effect of giving justification to Hamas passive anti-American stance as well as strengthening the realization of Americas anti-Arab bias throughout the middle east and the world. The difference between Fatah and Hamas is that Hamas are "true believers" in their cause and are willing to die for it. Fatah are simply fighting to maintain their positions of comfort and privlege. In this sort of struggle, history favors the Hamas position. In the past, Hamas has stated that they are open to peace talks which include the recognition of Israel, but this has always been drowned out in the noise generated by Israel.
