Get set for a hard-line terrorist Palestinian Authority...
Coming soon, a Hamas-run Palestinian Authority - dedicated to the destruction of Israel.
Hamas swept 73 percent of the vote in the West Bank's largest city, Nablus, one of three major towns and cities in which it won local elections, according to preliminary results released Friday.Arafat's Fatah party has now split in two....and this will allow Hamas to easily win.
The victory deals a harsh blow to the ruling Fatah party just six weeks ahead of the January 25 parliamentary poll.
"We didn't think for a moment that Hamas would win so many votes," said Issam Abu Bakher, Fatah's chief in the Nablus region. "The earth shook under our feet, and this will have an effect on the parliament (elections)."
Of course, my personal view is that Hamas should NOT be allowed to run. The Oslo Accords prohibited any political party with ties to terrorism running in elections.
