want to go along with it. Palestinians only follow them at this point because theirs is the only option that makes any amount of sense from their point of view.
Once you start legitimately, honestly acting and offering in favor of better solutions, that will change. And Hamas will either have to adapt to fit Palestinian wishes, or lose power.
