    The popularity of the Hamas-led government is on the rise because it can deliver, and it did in a very short period, as figures on health and education clearly show. Its elected representatives are not corrupt, some have been doing their job unpaid because of shortage of money to pay salaries. Their popularity has also risen thanks to Israeli barbarism and terrorism, and its cruel policy of collective punishment. The zionists miscalculated. The whole saga about the captured soldier hid behind it a political agenda: the destruction of the Hamas-led government. The thinking was that if the Palestinians are punished for what was perceived as Hamas' fault, then they will flee Hamas. The opposite happened. If Israel is pleased with anyone, then, that person/group must be bad for the Palestinians and good for Israel (it cannot be both). This is how the Palestinians think, and rightly so. And this is what the war criminal maddies in the army must realize.
