    Many observers believe that Iran has upped he ante and persuaded Hamas to launch attacks on Israeli citizens in wake of the Peace Talks. Hamas has been relatively quiet since the devastating operation code named Cast Lead. Promises of sophisticated weaponry and increased financial support, plus which this writer believes some "Arm twisting", has placed Hamas into a precarious situation. For, Hamas may well have its aims of overturning the possible peace talks, Hamas must also take into account that the world watches, that any sympathy gained and Aid Flotillas may well have been in vain, unless Hamas has been totally overcome by the despotic theocracy, in which case, Hamas is no more than a direct offshoot of Iran, the one country that is run by the most despised Regime on planet earth. The intentions of the PA are clear, they seek peace and security. They seek a better life for their citizens. What does Hamas seek for their citizens.? Do we have to guess.? I would say, that if a referendum were held today in Gaza, they good people, the majority, would vote Hamas out of office. Good day.
