The popular uprisings of the Arab Spring could sweep Hamas from power, the US Ambassador for Middle East Peace David Hale said Thursday, AFP reported.

"The Palestinians are no more immune to the currents of change and demand for democratization, reform and freedom than any of the other people in the region," Hale said.

"I think you will see those same forces affect Hamas because clearly their leadership is not characterized by any of those words."

The envoy went on to say that the Palestinian people are more likely to throw their support behind the Palestinian Authority if it provides a clear alternative to violence.
