Well... This Was Unexpected

It seems that the terrorist group Hamas has won an outright majority of the seats in the new Palestinian Parliament:

"The Fatah officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said they expected Hamas to win about 70 seats, which would give the Islamists a majority in the 132-seat parliament. They spoke on condition of anonymity because counting in some districts was continuing."

The last sentence in this article is one of those "duh" statements you've heard so much about:

"A victory by Hamas, which is committed to Israel's destruction, would likely jeopardize future Mideast peace moves."

D'ja think?

Actually, I think it's a brilliant move on their part. The US and Israel refuse to deal with Hamas...but, by democratic election, the Hamas party is elected to be the majority party in the Palestinian government. Either Hamas is dealt with, or the word of the US and Israel is questioned by all of those limp wrists and fellow travelers in the UN, the Senate, the House, the State Department...
