    I think the existence of the Palestinian split is fairly well known. One of the main issues in the Israel/Palestine saga is the absence of a single credible Palestinian leadership with whom anyone can negotiate, and this has immeasurably strengthened Israel's hand in their 'not an inch' approach . Hamas (which is unapologetically Islamist) in fact won the only free election held in the West Bank and Gaza, and Fatah are hopelessly compromised by corruption and their connivance with the Israeli occupation. There is simply no prospect of progress with this dispute, and in the overall Middle East scheme of things, it's little more than a minor irritant and an excuse for the Western left to engage in some pointless virtue-signaling.

    They came slithering out of their rocks to declare support en masse for the Palestinian Spring and Hamas in 2013.

    Most of their followers have learning difficulties, and they would struggle to find Gaza on a map.

    Democracy? Mahmoud Abbas was supposed to vacate the Palestinian presidency in 2009. He's still there, refusing to hold an election to renew his mandate.

    They're going to have to negotiate with Bargouti sooner or later if they want to keep Hamas at bay.

    No he's propped up by Israel and the US because he's a compliant fool and does their bidding
