    No need to thank Hamas at all! Israel never needed the Palestinians not consulted with them when it came to demolishing homes, confiscated land, building the illegal settlements or the Apartheid wall, or shooting at children. The US did not need Hamas to halt its vision for a democratic ME. Its war on Iraq opened its eyes on new realities. Iraq is now ruled by pro-Iranian factions, making it impossible for the US to take any actions against Iran in the forseeable future. Iraq also showed that, if people were free to vote, then the outcome will almost certainly go gainst the wishes of the US administration. All the Hamas victory did, was to strenghthen this reality. So, no one needed Hamas in order to take any actions nor draw any new conclusions.... the old rules of the jungle still prevail, and the seeds of interventionism are just bearing the usual bitter realities.
