We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Whoa Boy. Those wacky Palestinians did something no one expected during their solid election yesterday. There was no real violence, no bombs or nasty fights or anything like that. What they did was elect Hamas to 76 of the 130 or so seats in the Palestinian Parliament. Doesn't that make everyone feel special.
Keep in mind Hamas is rated as a terrorist organization and does have an armed wing. Their primary goal is the destruction of the state of Israel. What shall we do. The Bush administration said, "we don't deal with terrorists." Fine... but in order to deal with Palestine, we're going to HAVE deal with Hamas, a terrorist organization. Obviously Hamas offered something to the Palestinian people they weren't getting from the existing administration.
So where do we go from here? It's a tough choice but I think the U.S. must follow Israel's lead on this. If Israel is willing to deal with Hamas or whoever, then we must accept that. The political side of the group obviously have been gaining strength and we can hope they continue to do, that they will negotiate and continue the disarming. It's mostly just a wait and see at this point though.
