Hamas Wins

Hamas has apparently done well in yesterday's elections in Palestine, winning 76 seats in the 132-member parliament. Hamas has run on a platform of armed conflict, no peace negotiations, and no recognition for the state of Israel.

Fatah, the old party in power, only won 43 seats. Fatah had supported a cease fire and peace negotiations with Israel.

Hamas has deep ties with terrorist organizations in Palestine, and the elections results do not bode well for improving stability in the region.

It is a dark day indeed when a terrorist organization gains control of a government.
