My blood is still boiling about that story from the Independent: Egypt building a wall to help Israel crush Gaza, to stop tunnels from getting into and out of Gaza, and Hamas won’t criticise them for it. Let’s not mince words: this is treasonous to the Palestinians. When Mahmoud Abbas refused to try to press Israel through UN channels for its war crimes in Gaza, the Palestinians revolted in outrage. This is no less outrageous. It is criminal. Hamas has been an unmitigated failure and catastrophe for the Palestinians. This is not to say I do not apportion blame to Israel for the suffering of Palestinians or anything like that. It is to say that Hamas is just as bad as Fatah, it is destined to be no less coopted and corrupt than Fatah.
