6. Do you consider Hamas leadership to be 'the oppressed?'

 

I agree that no civilians deserve this horror. I agree that Palestinians living in Gaza experience levels of deprivation and oppression I would never want to accept. I agree that these civilians deserve a life of dignity and freedom. However, do you consider Hamas leadership to be 'the oppressed?' I do not. It's hard to find visionary, compassionate leadership on either side of the IP divide, but the Hamas leaders who chose tunnel-digging and arms buildups over electricity and resources for hospitals certainly share in the blame.
