Am I the only person not surprised that Hamas won the Palestinian elections by a freaking LANDSLIDE? All of the news agencies are making it out to be a big shock or something. It's like...um, DUH. The Palestinian populace has been indoctrinated to support terrorism for the last 40+ years, of course they're going to vote for the party that openly supports terrorism over the party that supports it undercover.
All of these news articles have headlines like, "Hamas Wins Election--Peace Process in Peril" and other such tripe. There has never BEEN a peace process, only a piece process. Fatah supports terrorism just as much as anyone else, they just have to pretend not to so they look more legit. Well, their pretensions have come back to bite them, and maybe--just maybe--it could be that the world will finally concede that Israel can't negotiate with open terrorists whose openly proclaimed goal is to destroy the country.
But I'm not holding my breath.
