A Hamas Mistake

I've Been Thinking:
There is almost never internal critique within the Arab world.
Hamad was the person who spun the Hamas takeover in Gaza that ousted Fatah from the area this past June. Hamad was the person who put a spin on everything that had anything to do with Hamas.
Hamad just published a critical letter on a Palestinian website called AMAD.
It did not unify Palestinians.
Palestinians continue to be divided and Hamas continues to be isolated.
This outspoken attack by Hamad, a clear rejection of policy by a well known former insider, is a serious blow to Hamas.
For the record, Hamas leadership responded by labeling Ghazi Hamad a traitor. They backed up their assertion saying that he advocated talking with Israel.
That response comes as no surprise.
