One of the comments on Raed's blog gave a link to this Palestinian news website, It's published from Gaza (in Arabic) and it's riveting... an uncensored lively discussion on all issues. Epecially fascinating is the debate on the transformation Hammas is going through. Hammas has changed its tone considerably in the last year (signalling some willingness to negotiate on a two state solution). This month they won the municipal elections. They are set to do well in the Parliamentry elections in summer, maybe even to win. Their popularity comes from their image as free from corruption, and also because Palestinians generally belive that Hammas actions are driving Israel out of Gaza.
