#1 Following Hamas victories in municipal elections in recent months, Israel has been forced to co-ordinate with Hamas-backed mayors on day-to-day issues such as providing water and electricity.

Sounds to me like providing water and electricity is Ham-Ass'es job now.

Hamas has not carried out a suicide attack since the truce went into effect.

Has anyone told the dead Israeli's this? Maybe my memory is faulty but I seem to remember a number of Ham-Ass bombing (or due to a Ham-Ass renamed splinter group....).

On the other hand this is Al-jitz reporting and they don't count jews....

#2 It means that it becomes harder---but not impossible---for the proponents of the "two states solution" to carry on.

#3 *shocking upset*

I am not particularly shocked, but I am rather upset about this turn of events.

#4 We should give money, weapons and training to Fatah now, and help them to cause as much instability and chaos as possible to try and counteract the Hamas PR drive.

#5 Unless you think the Paleo's should be perpetual wards of an "adult" state or kept under a dictatorship, then what are you going to do with them if you don't give them the opportunity to have representation?

What I like about this is that it is honest. It is the Paleo people themselves that want the Jews washed into the sea. Hamas does represent them. So they are no longer The Poor Piteous Paleos, Pawns of the Powerful, but they are a nation that just unamimously declared their desire to go to war with Israel. And so we don't have to feel bad for the poor piteous Paleos when they get what they voted for. It's what they wanted.

#6 It will be interesting to see which countries and organizations agree to fund the Hamas government. Hopefully the US won't be among them.

#7 Looks like HAMAS has informally adopted Russia's [c. 2018], and China's [2015-2017]. and the Clintons [2015-2020] timeline for forcing Socialism and OWG on America = Israel. American, Global, and now Jewish Holocaust and Annihilation is good for the Sun, trees, and gosh darn gee whizzz everyone.
