The Future of Hamas Is Pretty Bleak

Ryan Mauro on The Capitol with Maria Maalouf


Hamas faces a bleak future given the backlash since its October 7 attack on Israel. An increasing number of Sunnis view Hamas as a Iranian proxy. If Israel proceeds to dismantle the Hamas organization in the Gaza Strip, it will weak, further damaging Hamas’s recruitment and fundraising. Yet in the United States, polling data indicate the 57 percent of the Muslim American community agrees or somewhat agrees with Hamas’s actions on October 7, and 30 percent fully agree.

The Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas’s parent organization, still has millions of supporters internationally. It will continue to be a subversive and terrorist force overseas. In the U.S. the risk seems to be more in terms of political influence and its ability to radicalize people.
