The anti-Hamas activity might well be against the Palestinian Constitution. But it would be well to remember that that document, actually called the Basic Law, was rewritten by the Sharon and Bush governments and then forced down the PA's throat when Arafat was still alive. The Basic Law can again be rewritten, but it will have to wait for Palestinian elections. Those will have to wait until after they can be held without interference or annulment as happened with the last elections. A shame that elections can't be held. It might reinforce Abbas' slim mandate. But with the shadow of annulment, how is it possible to have free or fair elections?
