Do Gazans recognize their predicament?

Rachel Abrams thinks Gazans might decide sometime soon that they have had enough of Hamas and its 'nerve wracking' game with Gilad Shalit.
What are they thinking—especially the women—as each day, engaged in their quotidian to-ing and fro-ing, they pass by a mural depicting Gilad counting the hours until his release from captivity among them? Do they recognize the degradation of celebrating, or accepting, or just ignoring the kidnapping of children for use as bargaining chips in the endless terror war against their neighbor?

Surely there have to be some who have begun to notice the flourishing of their brethren in Judea and Samaria and to ask themselves why they've been sentenced by Khaled Meshaal and his masters in Damascus and Syria to live lives as less than humans, as pawns in Hamas's own very nerve-racking game; and, feeling all the horror of what they've become, begin to contemplate taking a stand against it. The moment they do will be the moment Hamas's power over them—and the Israelis—ends.

Well, maybe. But look how long it's taken the Iranians - who were in a much better position - to understand that the Ahmadinejad - Khameni regime must go (and even now they're not exactly clear on that).

So yes, at some point there may be an uprising against Hamas, but I believe it's a long way away, and that it will be suppressed even more brutally than what is going on in Iran today.
