On Hamas, Sam Halaby notes:
#Hamas: you're a headache. Maybe if you stopped giving #Israel every excuse to blockade you, like firing rockets, maybe you'd have peace.
Sarah, who tweets as @Jnobiyeh, adds:
Hamas didn't just sign a “unity” deal with collaborationist Fatah today, it signed the death certificate of its resistance to #Israel.
