I don't believe Americans should support Hamas. You should support Palestinian independence, however.
It will allow an entire people to be free on land they have a historical and cultural right to, interact with their neighbors, become part of the international community, potentially thrive economically, enjoy full human rights, and minimize violence with Israel. Armed with self-determination and economic freedom, Palestine will moderate, and the Hamas' of the population will lose their foothold.
