 Increasing Popularity of Hamas

PostSubject: Increasing Popularity of Hamas   Wed Mar 19, 2008 7:17 pm

The Irish Times threw up an interesting report today on Hamas. Support for the group has risen in recent months, with about 10% of the population shifting their attitudes and perceptions in Hamas' favour.
Irish Times article here. Michael Jansen has his biases so I found the original survey here:

The Jerusalem Post is blaming the dissapointing Annapolis conference for the shift here.

Not entirely unrelated is the news that Hamas is willing to start a 'dialogue' with Fatah. According to the above poll, most Palestinians are opposed to the current state of afffairs, though blame is shifting towards Fatah.
