Eretz Yisrael Time

Every now and then you hear these ridiculous arguments that the Gazan Arabs don't really want Hamas and didn't overwhelmingly vote for them, and other shtuyot.

In the latest Gazan election, for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) union in Gaza, Hamas won 17 out of the 27 seats. Of those 17 seats, 11 are specifically reserved for (the fundamentalist) teachers.

But before you assume that if they aren't Hamas then they must be moderate, just wait for the next piece of news.

In a rare event, an Israeli-Arab music conductor, 50-year-old Wafa Younis brought her Palestinian Youth orchestra to play peace music to Holocaust survivors in Holon.

Upon hearing about this, the Palestinian Authority (you know, the moderate ones) blasted the event and barred conductor Younis from the city of Jenin where she maintains an apartment.

So much for the moderates.
