irosie91, et al,
This is an interesting question.
By many accounts, including a couple members of this discussion group, there is no real love between the Palestinian that is the insurgent, and the Palestinian that lives for peace. There is no real dividing label or characteristic that you can put on them, for which you will not find an exception. And, there is no quick way to tell them apart.
My impression is that most of the Gazians are much more militant and are not interested in the FATAH Peace and Statehood Initiatives spawned in the West Bank. So, it is quite possible that the Gazians will stick to insurgent tactics. Although it is possible that "some" People of Gaza might be tired and want to chose the pathway to a peaceful settlement, Palestinians are known to kill their own that cooperate with those that oppose the insurgency.
At this point we just don't have enough data points in the set to accurately make a prediction.
my impression is that Gazans have been much more intensely propagandized ---
but even more important is they lost an advantage with the INTIFADA that the
PA people are regaining---that is the ECONOMIC interaction.
What makes you say that?
The people are going to take control of this, in my opinion.
Neither Fatah or Hamas are acting for them.
ISM, Free Gaza, BDS, IAW are all people movements. None of them are related to any political party. It is just as well.
