He stretches out his legs towards a sizable fan whirring in the corner of his workplace. He appears keen to cool his toes.

Hamas' deputy foreign minister is hot but he is not bothered. A smile creeps across his neatly trimmed salt and pepper beard. He's extremely significantly within the pink.

"Everyone is celebrating. We are <a href="http://www.cheaplouboutinshoesbuy.com/">Christian Louboutin Shoes</a> extremely happy. It was fantastic," he smiles.

And the cause for his good humour: The election of a new president. Not in Gaza but in neighbouring Egypt.

When it was announced final month that the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Mursi was to become Egypt's initial democratically elected president, a large number of Hamas supporters in Gaza took to the streets to celebrate.

Gaza City's main boulevard - the Champs Elysee du Gaza, as some locals choose to call it - was filled having a cacophony of car horns and firecrackers.

Nearby, a succession of Hamas leaders took to a stage to cheer the Brotherhood's victory.

They see Mr Mursi extremely much as one of their own.

"The new voice, the new regime in Egypt will probably be more supportive for the Palestinians. Not only for Hamas but for the entire Palestinian query," says Mr Hamed.

Another cause for his upbeat mood, Mr Hamed says is what is great for Hamas, is bad for Israel.

"Israel is more isolated now. It has lost its most significant buddy in the Middle East. Things won't be like below Hosni Mubarak."
'Same principles'

Hamas, which has been in energy in Gaza because 2007, was originally founded, within the 1980s, as a Palestinian offshoot of the long-established Muslim Brotherhood.

"At the finish of the day Hamas is part of the international Muslim Brotherhood organisation," says Mokhaimer Abu Sada, Professor of Politics at Gaza's al-Azhar University.

"Because Palestinians are below Israel's occupation maybe Hamas became <a href="http://www.cheaplouboutinshoesbuy.com/christian-louboutin-bridal-c-8.html">Christian Louboutin Bridal</a> a militant organisation dedicated to fighting that occupation. But in the finish from the day both Hamas and also the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt subscribe to the exact same principles."

Some analysts believe that having a powerful and now friendly neighbour will make Hamas more confident in its ongoing conflict with Israel.

In the days following Mr Mursi was elected, Hamas militants fired scores of rockets and mortars into Israel as the Israeli military carried out air strikes on Gaza.

It was the first time Hamas had directly engaged militarily for greater than a year, although Israel accuses the Islamist movement of permitting smaller militants groups to launch attacks.
