Unfortunately verte there has been friction and turmoil in the Palestinian lands since the Zionists violently took over their lands in the late 1940's to establish the state of Israel.

The dilemma is: how can you say that you want a democratic and transparent turnover of power in the Palestinian territory and then scream and stamp your feet like a spoiled little brat when an election is democratic and transparent - but it ends up with the victor you don't want to win?

The Western countries have their foot in their mouth right now about the Palestinian election and they don't know what to do about it and not appear hypocritical.

The reason they voted in Hamas is because Fatah is corrupt and the people are sick of corruption. I don't think the voters really mean to endorse the non-recognition of Israel, I just think they revolted against the palace guard, so to speak.

It was a vote against corruption? I guess Hamas uses GAAP when accounting for terror bombings.
