This Can't End Well

So much for the idea of peace in the region.

RAMALLAH, West Bank - The Islamic militant Hamas won a landslide victory in Palestinian parliamentary elections, winning 76 seats in the 132-member legislature, election officials said Thursday. The rival Fatah Party, which controlled Palestinian politics for four decades, won 43 seats. Hamas supporters raised their flag over the Palestinian parliament and rushed into the building amid clashes with Fatah loyalists a day after winning parliamentary elections.

It is beyond me how people could vote for a terrorist organization like Hamas. This is from Hamas' Charter: the Martyr's Oath.

"Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious...The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah's victory is realised...

...The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: 'The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him...'
Resisting and quelling the enemy become the individual duty of every Muslim, male or female. A woman can go out to fight the enemy without her husband's permission, and so does the slave: without his master's permission...

And we're supposed to treat these people like legitimate, rational world leaders?

Is this a surprise? Did we expect that in a democratic vote, a majority of Palestinians would support the Israel/America power axis that keeps blowing up post offices and bulldozing homes? This seems like a really unrealistic expectation, especially for someone who hates the U.N. because of petty bureaucratic bullshit that you think detracts from the Greater Glory of America. How mad would you be if someone occupied your homeland and tore a bunch of shit down? You'd probably support the militant fundamentalist party too - oh, wait, you already do.

So Sean, which are you today? Bitter, drunk off your ass, or both?

Hmm, I guess I should've known better than to tangle with someone who could defend her beliefs so eloquently. By calling me a drunk, you have completely refuted my criticism of your logic. You have a bright future in politics.

1) I don't like wasting my time with dumbasses who won't listen to reason. It was also hard to pick a coherent statement to refute out of your bitter comment.

2) Was I wrong?

Wow. It sure is good that we have such a brain-wizard for a president, goin' round promotin' dumbocracy and such.

Oh, and as an outside observer to the sean/rightwingconspirator dialog... sorry rightwing... you are wrong (and in so many ways). One other thing... it's nice to see that you've given up the crayons and have learned to type.
