Palestinians: Israel Prevents Hamas Takeover of West Bank

According to a November 2007 poll of Palestinians by An Najah University, a plurality of Palestinians feel that Hamas is "unable to dominate the West Bank" mainly because of Israel's presence in that territory. That seems to be something that both Olmert and Abbas would want to consider when they meet in Annapolis later this month.

What makes Hamas unable to dominate the West Bank?

36.7% The Israeli Occupation
23.3% The Strength of Fateh in the West Bank
19.6% The weakness of Hamas in the West Bank
13.0% The strength of the security apparatuses in the West Bank
7.4% No opinion/I do not know
