18. If your speaking of Hamas I think your either
1. relying on the past that being when Hamas was first elected and even after their take over of Gaza they did receive a fair degree of support due to the fact that were democratically elected as the majority in the Palestinian parliament, however as time has passed and Hamas true nature has been shown that 'support' has been fading but that goes quite unnoticed

or

2.artificially designed in this manner- any support for the people of Gaza who are trapped living under Hamas rule regardless of how they voted, the election that gave Hamas the majority was not held in just Gaza but in the West Bank as well, however any support save the salty tears we see here for a single feminist is reflexively denounced as support for Hamas as though everyone in Gaza is Hamas or if a Hamas member many get a bite to eat along with 50 civilians then Hamas is being supported or the 50 civilians should indeed go hungry

as to the rest the use of human or 'minority' rights in this arena as a means of delegitimizing Palestinian self determination has become Orwellian in nature and until recently the terms used in a derogatory manner to describe those that support Palestinian self determination were usually seen only in a nonprogressive arena to describe Democrats and those in this country who were against was with Iraq racial profiling for any purpose ect, but times do indeed change
