Hamas shocked that the West doesn't like them

Well Gee, are they so blind? I guess they could be, Afterall Hezbollah was shocked at Israels response. I tend to think that Palestinians live in some kind of information vacuum not realising how ther actions appear in the Western media.

Next we will get articles like "Bin laden upset that America hates him" or Iraq suprised that their country is not a more popular holiday destination"

Hamas, the Islamist group that runs the Palestinian government, said on Thursday it could never have imagined the vast international pressure it would come under after winning democratic elections earlier this year.

In a candid article published in the Palestinian press, Ahmed Youssef, a political adviser to Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, a Hamas leader, said the group had been shocked by the strength of opposition to its electoral victory.

"It went beyond all imagination," wrote Youssef.

"The government ... did not expect the pressures and the siege imposed on our people would be so harsh, so strong and so large in scale."

Youssef's is the latest in a series of articles by Hamas officials in recent weeks either seeking to explain themselves or calling on the Palestinian community to refrain from violence and think more carefully about how it opposes Israel.
