Since (when it comes to terrorism), there is no functional difference between Hamas and Fatah (other than one claims to be religious and the other not), I'm not sure what the big deal really is.

As the PLO's PA's peace partner, we gave money and weapons to one terrorist group (Fatah) who directly funneled them to the other (Hamas) - now we are just cutting out the middle man.

Look on the plus side, maybe we'll pass on some of the savings to help the poor.

i agree

suddenly, hamas can be held accountable for their actions

and israel can defend herself against a hostile neighboring government

i thought the election was between

more terror


terror, more or less.

phishaliyah: Hamas will be held as accountable as Fatah has been over the years.

Don't be surprised when the "unconnected" splinter groups start popping up, somehow fully armed and funded.

well if hamas stands by their vow not to negotiate and to continue armed struggle, then it's nation vs. "nation"

only nixon could make peace with china

and only hamas in the government could allow for israel to once and for all deal with this problem in contemporary "rules of war" fashion

the freedom fighters are now an army

the martyr is now a king

the war is now conventional

Olmert, and the Quartet, need a "negotiating partner" more than Hamas needs them. So the West are the ones that are going to have to capitulate, not Hamas.

I gotta go with levi on this one.

Well I say better Hamas than Fatah. Fatah plays games in front of Western media, Hamas does not. They hate us, and they don't try to cover it up with bogus peace talk. The most dangerous enemy to have is the kind who holds an olive branch in one hand, and a gun in the other behind their back. At least with Hamas we know they have guns in both hands wide open where we can see them.

Re: cutting out the middle man;

Hopefully the old Mafia Dons from Fatah won't go down quietly; their red blood, mixed with their yellow flags, will bring us the orange we love so much.

Mmm Hmm. Like these elections are only about us.

the artist - do you think that the Hamas win will make a difference to the Arab on the street? Will they really get rid of corruption? I know that Hamas uses some of its international donations to help their poor - do you think that they will continue?

JoeSettler said...

pp: The central focus (perhaps even the mandate) of this particular blog is all about 'us' - the Third Jewish Commonwealth in the land of Israel.

Which particular Arab terrorist is currently running their government is irrelevant.

Do I really care that their president denies the holocaust and was the number 2 PLO terrorist (after Arafat) for over 30 years, or that their legislature is made up of people that have been directly involved in terrorist attacks against Jews.

There is no difference, so it is irrelevant to this blog.

JoeSettler said...

Wbm: Of course they will help their poor and fight corruption. There’s no question about that.

We may also see Hamastan turn into a mini-Iran religiously.

And they will also continue to attack us, directly or through “breakaway” splinter cells.

JoeSettler said...

pp: Read what Jameel wrote to see that it really makes no difference who actually won.

you hit the spot.The most sad part is the world will now rationalize hamas behavior,similar to what it did with fatah behavior.
