More On Hamas Electoral Victory

Doug over at Fine Dry Wit makes the point I had internally commented about yesterday, namely that the election victory of Hamas is not a positive thing...for the Palestinians. Read Emanuele Ottolenghi's piece explaining, much better than I ever could, why that is. In a nutshell, the next time a missile from Gaza strikes Israel, or the next time a suicide bomber detonates his (or, unfortunately, her) sick self, there can be no hiding behind the canard that it was the work of a "militant faction" over which there is ongoing struggle for control. Not to become overly melodramatic, but the Palestinians, absent a sea change in their philosophy, may have elected the signatories to the death warrant of their statehood.
