    As the power of those in exile ebbs, and those who have the tough job of dealing with reality in Palestine gain in power and influence, Hamas will change. I have seen exiles plotting, scheming and accomplishing nothing in my life. I did a lot of my growing up in Miami, Florida. There were Cuban exiles who were full of bluster and threats. Even a few that had with the CIA's help tried to invade Cuba (those I respected for putting their lives where their mouths were). We have one in custody today that was the mastermind who killed 78 people when he had a Cubana Airliner bombed. But mostly lots of strutting and boasting, and little else. Such is the lot of the exiles in Damascus. And, now that those who were in the trenches are now entrenched in the government of Palestine, those in Damascus, and their boasting and dreams of glory, are inevitably in terminal decline.
