20. The notion that such political groups will not change is contrary to
the historical evidence, they always change. They die out,
they seize power and become the rulers themselves, they become
corrupt and decadent, they become allies of former enemies, and
find new enemies to anathematize. Self-interest always wins out
in the end, and the old leaders die and are replaced with new
leaders with different agendas. A concerted effort to corrupt
and suborn the once pristine principles of Hamas has every chance
of success.
