Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that the Palestinian residents of Gaza wanted to replace the current Hamas government, and that they will eventually be successful, Army Radio reported.
Speaking at a graduation ceremony in Jerusalem’s National Security College, Netanyahu said “If the Palestinians in Gaza had the power to overthrow the government, they would. And I tell you, they will have that power.”
What I’m finding in Gaza isn’t a massive love for Hamas, though it exists, but profound disillusion with Fatah and politics in general. Hamas has certainly brought security to the streets.
Somehow I don’t think the Palestinians here will be looking to Netanyahu for directions how to conduct their lives.
