Could this be the beginning of a Gaza Spring?

Could this be the beginning of a Gaza Spring?

Check out the hashtag of the people of Gaza, in protest against the genocidal Hamas regime .  "We want to live"  #بدنا_نعيش

Over the last few days, thousands of Gazans in Nusseirat, Rafah, Deir El Balah, Khan Younis and Jabalia have taken to the streets, 
burning tires and blocking streets in protest of the poor living conditions and high taxes in the Gaza strip.

Gaza protests life under Hamas
Hamas has been arresting journalists for reporting or photographing the riots,  but Gazans are leveraging their experience with social media to get the word out.  Hamas security services  have arrested journalist Osama al-Kahlout  in Deir al-Balah because of his coverage of the protests.  Security forces also attacked Jamil Sarhan, director general of the Independent Commission for Human Rights in Deir al-Balah, and Mahmoud al-Louh, a reporter for Sawt al-Shaab.  At least 80 members of Fatah  have been arrested by Hamas.
On Twitter, Hussein al-Sheikh, an aide to PA President Mahmoud Abbas, wrote, “Gaza is rising up in the face of oppressors.” 

Videos from the riots show protesters, including children, getting beaten.  Live fire is also used against the crowds.  Hamas-controlled hospitals have not published any statistics on casualties.

More human rights abuses and corruption compliments of hamas that Israel bashing radical leftists will sweep under the rug because it doesn’t help their narrative or agenda.

Aside from the fact that nation building efforts and any meaningful democratic reforms in the muslim world have been a complete failure it’s because of shit like this why a palestinian state never will happen. Not for several generations at least anyways. nobody wants to say it but we all know that any state those people will create would be nothing but another disastrous jihaidist cesspool.
