Before these elections took place, earlier this week, the US, Israel, France and the UK have stated that their help to the Palestinians will cease if a Hamas majority would come to power in Israel. Without the USA and EEC's financial help the PA has no chance. Palestine will be in economic ruins. Let's see how their Arab comrades with their oil wealths will come rushing to their poor brothers aid. If the West keeps its word , this "victory" for Hamas will be the deathknell for all Palestinians. In which case Israel can sit back and relax. Maybe the moderates will call another election in 6 months and the rest of them may come to their senses. Who knows ? Some good may come from all this.
