Stupid Is As Stupid Be

Here are two sentences from Steve Erlanger's story of today:-

For seven weeks now, up to 6,000 Palestinians trying to return to their homes in the Gaza Strip have been stranded in Egypt, objects of a political struggle between the Palestinian factions of Hamas and Fatah involving Israel and Egypt.

But there finally appears to be a deal, opposed by Hamas, to let them return, beginning with about 100 on Sunday, with more to follow during the week, Palestinian, Egyptian and Israeli officials said Saturday.

Israel is only marginally involved because of its security concerns over who gets in and all it wants is the names so they can be checked.

But, if Hamas is opposed, and Hamas rules Gaza, how can there be a deal?

Am I stupid or something?
