Hamas Victory over Fatah Palestinian parliamentary election

As I expected The Islamic militant group Hamas swept to victory over the long-dominant Fatah faction on Thursday in the Palestinian parliamentary election, a political earthquake that could bury chances for peacemaking with Israel.

The outcome would not automatically unseat President Mahmoud Abbas, who was elected last year. But he has said he might resign if unable to pursue a peace policy.

From my experience leaders with strong opinions that are morally wrong usually change their opinion if they have to work with moral people but the majority of the followers don't.

As the perception of morally wrong is different for Hamas leaders and Majority of Western Worlds leaders we will have to wait and see what happens.

Hamas winning the election is not as bad as people think because if Hamas philosophy changes which I think will happen with political contact with western worlds then the large majority of Palestinians will move as one.

One of my philosophies in life is only worry about the things you can change and that would be my advice to Hamas. Israelies already understand this and are in the next step which is gerrymandering the bounderies for future elections so minimum palestianans can vote. As the only way I can see Hamas meeting its current goal in the current political climate is to win the Israeli Election which I cant see it doing.

The Iraq election and now the Palestinian election is a good step in bringing democracy into the Middle East lets not wreck this opportunity
