Hamas and the Beeb

In the interests of something or other, I thought I'd mention the Have Your Say response to the latest question from the BBC. It's quite interesting.
Here are the questions:

Is this the beginning of the end for Hamas in power?

Work in all ministries was suspended on Monday in protest at attacks on government buildings.

Thousands of public sector workers are desperate after going without full salaries for months because the government cannot afford to pay them.

The international community put pressure on Hamas to recognise Israel by cutting off funding even before it assumed office in March.

Factional fighting between Fatah and Hamas have left at least ten people dead since Sunday.

Can Hamas and Fatah set aside their differences and share power? Who do you blame for the recent violence in Gaza and the West Bank? Will US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's visit to the region this week help to restore calm?

I'm not going to do it for you, but, if you organise by "most recommended", opinions on the first few pages seem to be split about 50-50 as to whether it's the evil West or the evil Middle East which is to blame.
