HAMAS are the worst kind of terrorists, and are an Iranian proxy which couldn't care less for Palestines' welfare. But unlike most posters who gleefully believe Hamas is "OUT", "dead", "nobody", etc., HAMAS is still supported by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Indonesia, even Russia and China, ina less direct way, give them political red carpets. It's a wishful thinking to believe they are in their nadir. They are having a crisis, and don't know what to do politically with Gaza, only to fire qassams, brainwash children and agitate antisemitism. But they are far from irrelevant, and would get a higher vote than many would expect in a Palestinian voting.
