Murdering people is equivalent to staging a coup? Then people are staging coups everyday. Be less vague.

They won fair elections, were not recognized for winning those elections, hit with economic sanctions, then had Fatah forces in Northern Gaza try to establish military control. I'm not trying to portray Hamas as the good guys, but they most certainly did not initiate the coup.

What point would they have in initiating a coup to overthrow a current government, while also running to be part of that current government. It follows no logic.
