The victory of Hamas to the last Palestinian Elections remind me the election of an Islamist group in Algeria back in early 90. Western countries,France leading, refused to recognize the GIA'victory and urged the FLN to resist, which the FLN did, and the whole thing ended up to explode in a very long civil war with hundred thousands of deads. Western Counrties, israel include should be careful. Hamas is what it is but this, to me, is a good opportunity to get them to change their stance and recognize Irsael. They won't do that today but eventually they have to do it. They don't have choice. Realpolitk has to prevail. This day was about to come. I told my friends years ago while Sharon was destroying all the PA infrastructure that this will pave the way for the extremists and there we are today.
