Look certain people re-elected Bush--an indication that they are not reacting properly to the intense international consequences we were and are experiencing--nor the serious implications this has on human and civil rights--here and internationally. Should we praise/congratulate them for this? No. In Response-- People could boycott this country, they certainly have a right to do so. Similarly-- People have a right to boycott Hamas for their actions. What Is Wrong-- Is that they are punishing people who didn't even vote for Hamas/aren't a part of Hamas, etc. I Understand-- That Palestinians will make mistakes because they are relatively new to these things. That some voted for a Balance of Power against Fatah, etc. But Now-- It's your turn to learn how to vote--given your local issues and your INTERNATIONAL issues. Palestinians should have put pressure on Fatah to be better and Hamas, etc. to work more/better with Fatah for your people's goals.
