Indeed, it has gotten to a point where it is difficult to spot a Palestinian flag at rallies. This blatant absence reinforces the claims of activists in Fatah and other organizations in the Palestine Liberation Organization that Hamas is not motivated by nationalist principles, but rather is loyal to external factors that are liable to dictate its moves and influence it.
