I think you misunderstood what I said. I do not doubt that a significant number of people hate Hamas. That is different from stating that a significant number of people want to overthrow them.

How is it different? You think there’s a lot of people who hate Hamas but really want to see them stay in power? Why?

As to the latter point, I do not, as I stated above, have any hard data. However, I do know that surveys continue to show a majority of Gaza residents supporting Hamas’ views on specific key issues, even while stating that they would vote for Fatah.

Yeah. It shows a majority. That’s not really relevant to what we’re talking about, is it?

Taken together, the survey ata suggests, to me at least, that while there may be many in the Gaza Strip who are unhappy with Hamas rule and would, if given an opportunity to vote them out of power, vote against Hamas, the number of those who would actually seek to “throw off” Hamas rule is, at most, very limited (but not non-existent, since there are even those who will risk their lives to help the Israelis against Hamas).

Cannot tell if you’re just fucking with me at this point, man. I have no clue what you’re trying to define ‘throw off’ as in order to make this work— if you mean ‘oppose visibly’, then may I introduce you to the point I already fucking made?
