Hamas Victory

Reader comment on item: [The Hamas Victory and] Prospects for Peace

Some body should have told the Bush administration "be careful what you wish for you might get it".

It is amazing to me that we are encouraging democracy as a panacea for the entire world. Nowhere in the Middle East except for Israel foundations for democracy exists. We are fooling ourselves if we think democracy will bring peace to the Middle East. With election of Hamas, in effect Iran has become Israel's neighbor. I suspect the West will find a way for accepting Hamas on the pretext that if we don't, Iran will fill the void and help Hamas even more.

The West should do all it can to defeat both Hamas and Iran and all Islamofascists in the world and not to be worried about losing markets or money. I am confident that if we don't take care of this problem, the extremists in Jordon and Egypt will get encouragement from success of the elections in the territories and the whole Middle East will be engulfed.
Somehow the Algerian solution to so called free elections suddenly looks very good.
