In Gaza, surge of support for Hamas starts to fade

Excerpt:

Kamal Ajrami, a 54-year-old police officer, said he believes that a military victory over Israel is possible.

“As much as the Jews did to us, it is different now,” Ajrami said as he left a mosque here. “We have now reached Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. We are strong, and as they hit us in our houses, they will feel the same now in theirs.”

The lingering dreams of an older generation, though, draw a skeptical response from the younger one.

A poster of Abdullah Muzannar hangs in the window of his family’s sweet shop here. In it, an image of his smiling face is superimposed on a likeness of Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque, the central icon in all “martyr” montages.

Weird how this person said "the Jews" rather than "Israelis" for some reason.

4. Hopefully soon,

But I doubt any Israeli Jewish leader would ever be acceptable to Hamas,



Menachem Begin, right wing Likud ,was the one who made peace with Egypt.

6. And their birthrate is on the rise

The scary thing is that the most extremist elements in Israel tend to have the most children.

7. Not all these kids follow in their parents beliefs,

3 years in the army is quite the melting pot.

8. Not all of them serve in the army

In fact, there is some serious push against the premise of requiring the ultra-Orthodox to serve.
