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

Submitted by Elliot (Canada), Jan 27, 2006 at 13:53

Here are a few predictions.....

1. Hamas will be funded by Iran.
2. Since Hamas has no skill in governing, they will take the path of least resistance, ie. corruption and bribery as bad as Fatah.
3. Hamas will need a front man to negotiate ceasefires when the inevitable Israeli retaliation
occurs to Paletinian terror strikes.
4. The net result.... Israel and the Hamas led PA will negotiate with one another out of need.
5. At that point, the EU will begin funding the Hamas led PA as a Carteresqe encouragement to negotiate.
6. Funds will be funneled to graft.
7. Watch for internal assassinations.
