Politicians who typically agree on nothing are brought together by the Hamas victory and what it represents: namely, Palestinian people support terror and do not recognize Israel. Thanks to Hamas, Olmert will have no problem building a coalition after Israeli elections, no more problems building the fence, and much less objection to unilateral withdrawal from the West Bank. Olmert's agenda would have been very difficult before this Hamas election, as the people of Israel trusted Sharon to negotiate things like status of Jerusalem, but weren't sure of Olmert, who has taken actions to harm the nation's capital (i.e. supported the tragic Safdie Plan, which will pave over 12 miles of forested hills west of Jerusalem) already. Hamas has brought the doubters together - we will give Olmert a chance, even though he could end up the GWB to Israel's dwindling natural resources.
