Good stuff, check it out.. I’d like to add one If I may.
Hamas’ external wing based in Damascus does not necessarily see eye to eye with the challenges Ismail Haniyeh’s govt is facing, for Hamas in Damascus only the armed struggle (destroying Israel) matters, governing in any way is secondary. Haniyeh on the other hand would like to ensure that his power-base remains intact.
When the Viper’s head may be contemplating biting the body itself, you’ve got a recipe for trouble. I don’t think Hamas is one big happy family right now, there’s some panic brewing there in the PA and Daled Amos has rightly sensed it.
