Hamass war against Israel is not only losing militarily, but losing popular support for the Islamist group in Gaza as well, according to a study released last week.
A Washington Institute study published during the first week of the operation polled 450 Gazans between June 15-17before Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, but after Hamas began firing more rockets on Israel.
The study, which claims to be the only credible Palestinian poll since Israeli teens Naftali Frenkel (16), Gilad Shaar (16), and Eyal Yifrah (19), were abducted and murdered last month, reveals that 70% of Gazans believe that Hamas should maintain a ceasefire with Israel in both Gaza and the West Bank [Judea-Samariaed.].
In addition, 57% of respondents supported unity government chairman and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbass position that the new government should renounce violence against Israel.
Gazans are also unhappy with Hamass handle on securityor lack thereof. Seventy-one percent (71%) of Gazans considered crime in Gaza to be a significant problem; 66.6% consider Hamas to be guilty of corruption; and 78% criticize the use of terror groups, and not a formal security structure, to enforce law and order.

Palestinians have certainly lost Saudi Arabia’s and Egypt’s support
This isn’t Palestinians being reasonable, they’re just irritated that Hamas hasn’t achieved the goal they promised in 2006: to wipe out Israel. Arabs support whoever is winning. Pretty soon another group will come along promising to kill all the Jews, and they’ll get voted in on a landslide, and it’ll all start again.
Must be the part about them being blown into tiny bits.
The meat shields are sniveling.
