    ..... that this new situation is a good thing: No more pushing Israel to agree to a peace that DOES NOT AND CANNOT EXIST anywhere within the Palestinian camp because of the existence of Hamas ... furthermore ... Abbas was always running away from a "peace" he knew that he was not entitled to deliver in the name of Palestine. Let Europe and Pres. Obama scratch their heads now! PA or PLO, whatever, are nobodies, good to take the American money and improve the lives in the West Bank, in other words their bellies, ... BUT NOT their hearts! .... HAMAS CALLS THE SHOTS. If they win the election fine. If they lose they go back where they stand now. And Abbas goes back to his villa happy that he is out of this nightmare. Either way forget about peace! And one more thing: ISRAEL HAS NO PARTNER FOR PEACE! AND IF AMERICA AND EUROPE UNDERSTANDS THIS, THEY WILL HAVE TO REDO THEIR THINKING ON HOW TO PROMOTE A REAL PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
