“Yes we voted for Hamas government. We all did. We were tired of Fatah government’s corruption, wanted a change and hoped Hamas would be that change. That PRECISELY gives us the right to shout our anger at them, because they are responsible of us, responsible of our well-being, our security. Fatah in the West Bank arrests Hamas affiliates, Hamas in Gaza arrests Fatah affiliates, while everywhere in Palestine you can find family members from different factions living united. Yes we denounce our politicians – note that words; POLITICIANS – because their mutual hatred divided them even during the commemoration of the first anniversary of Cast Lead massacre, while a crowd of Palestinians from all factions stood united by martyrdom, grief, and love for Palestine.
Whether you want to admit it or not, believe it or not, corruption exists, and it’s our right as Palestinians to denounce it, because we are tired of it. Internal change has not only internal parameters. Change will come only if people outside realize that they need to take into consideration the fact that corruption does exist, and that it needs to be stopped if we want unity back. So if it takes us to shout it to the world for our political leaders to hear us and care to unite for us, we’ll do it a hundred times.”

I’LL POINT OUT THAT I WON’T AGREE WITH THE WHOLE PROGRAM OF THIS GYBO GROUP, (I ALWAYS SAID THAT I AGREE WITH THE EXISTANCE OF ISRAEL AND THEIR RIGHT TO DEFEND ITS BORDERS…. AS FAR AS WE TALK ABOUT 1967 BORDERS) BUT I LIKE THE FACT THAT THEY ARE CALLING FOR A DIGNITY AND A FREEDOM THAT IS BEYOND POLITICAL IDEALS.
ALSO, WHATEVER THE FUTURE WE MAY EXPECT FOR “PALESTISRAEL”,… THIS PPL’S VOICE WILL HAVE TO BE HEARD.
