You like my new suit?

Yet Hamas dismisses Western demands that it recognize Israel and renounce violence. Hamas fears an about-face would hurt it politically by making it look weak, said pollster Nader Said of Bir Zeit University. The militant group's exiled leaders, beholden to hard-line states Iran and Syria, have also crushed any compromise ideas floated by Hamas leaders in the West Bank and Gaza. For now, most Palestinians blame the West and Abbas for the crisis, and believe the new democratically elected government is being treated unfairly by the international community, said the pollster.

But, but, but, but, didn't BBC and Reuters and NBC and CBS and Jimmy Carter all tell us that the reason Palestinians voted for Hamas was because they weren't "corrupt" like Fatah and they had a well-run infrastructure of health care services, food banks, day care centers, and recreation facilities?

Could BBC and Reuters and NBC and CBS and Jimmy Carter all lie to us?
