Hamas wins Palestinian election

This is not good news. I understand that the Palestinian people were frustrated with their previous governments and that this was in part a reaction to that, but this was the worst choice amongst bad choices for the Palestinians. Israel is going to need very strong leadership to come out of their next election, because they have their hands full. The only hope, and it is a very thin, small hope, is that political power has a moderating affect on Hamas, but I don't think anyone should get their hopes up.
