"The Islamic fundamentalist group Hamas, which has said it favors the destruction of Israel, won a landslide victory in Palestinian legislative elections, securing 76 seats in the 132-member legislature, officials said today." - CNN

Careful what you wish for.

This will be very interesting to watch. I never believed that Yassir Arafat truly wanted a Palestinian State. Why would he trade the power of being the world's professional martyr for the annoyance of actually having to run something? His position was always better on the outside.

I think Hamas is probably more surprised than anybody. Strapping on the suicide bomber belt is easier than running an actual country.
Maybe the first time the legislature gets together they'll all blow themselves up.
We should be so lucky.
