Depending on whom you read, I'm hearing the whole spectrum on this. Some say Hamas is flailing and that Israel just emerged as the regions's Superpower (I believe Fareed Zakaria might've said that.). Others say, Hamas is fighting a losing battle with other Islamists vying for control. The real truth, however, is that Hamas guarantees Israeli occupation in Gaza indefinitely. I wish I could get into the heads of regular Palestinian civilians to understand their logic. I don't get it.
