Palistnians called the bluff.

Reader comment on item: [The Hamas Electoral Victory:] Democracy's Bitter Fruit

Submitted by Rench (United States), Jan 27, 2006 at 16:02

Essentally that is what happened. After years of getting away with double edged rhetoric, terror bombings one day, condemnation to the western audience in the next breath,The PA has called our bluff.

The elections ring, you infidels want demacracy elections etc.. OK heres are choice : Hamas, extreme in so many terrifying ways. Now what will the west do. Will we see it. Call it. or fold.The stream of pundits inundating the global media seem to think (foolishly) its not what it is. If the west etc.. can not recongnize the increasing storm clouds, either collectivley or on a individual basis,and break through and turn this thing around, the disaster thats gathering will be larger and larger with each mistake and dillusion of policy.

Make no mistake, there's war brewing in the Holyland. How could it be anything else. Its only a matter of scale. Each error we make will compound the disaster.Yes the stakes are that high, and incresing. That is the hand dealt. Its our bet.
