Support for Hamas is at the same time thin in Gaza. There is a lack of hope in the younger sections of society. Apathy towards politics. Many young Palestinians have resigned themselves to a life of repression, conflict and pain. They see no solution and certainly no solution that would be fair.
Without any process leading to the almost dead concept of a two-state solution, all that can be seen is the continuation of the status quo. For Palestine this means continuation of the resistance movement and not a political solution. With continuation of settlement expansion in the West Bank and the establishment of the E-1 plan, the concept of a two-state solution is even more difficult to conceive.
