Fighting good institutes of Hamas is just stupid. The study of Jonathan Benthall (2003) showed that 90 % of Hamas budget is spent on welfare and 10 % on resistance. He showed a clear separation between the two sides. After that Hamas decided in 2005 to go the political way and to stop suicide attacks, which resulted in the unity government in 2007. In the past Hamas kept truces during many months while Israeli violence went on. Abbas is president, supposed to represent all Palestinians. His task is to keep also Hamas involved in the political process. His behaviour is far from that, which means he had no right to speak on behalf of all Palestinians in Annapolis. His government never got parliamentory approval. With closing good institutes Abbas is just separating himself further from the majority of Palestinians. It is just stupid.
