Victory for Hamas?

Browsing through the website of el-Shorouq el-Jadid, the latest addition to the non-state press in Egypt, I found a poll with the question: "Do you agree with Hamas' statement that it won over Israel?" With 651 votes so far, the standing is: 76 percent in favour of "Of course, a clear victory!"

Totally unrepresentative and unscientific, of course, but kind of interesting nevertheless...

For those interested in a discussion of this topic (in arabic) from a leftist perspective, I see that the center for socialist studies in Cairo is holding a public lecture tonight at 6 pm, entitled "Victory for the Resistance?"
