In re the Hamas moderating hope

As I boogied around the Wisconsin blogosphere this morning, I see a lot of us are on the same page when it comes to noting that Hamas' election to power in Palistine might moderate them. I would like to add something to this discussion. Political power may moderate part of Hamas, but part of Hamas will always be militaristic and more interested in the destruction of Israel. If we do see moderation, I believe it will be because Hamas will begin to mimic Sinn Fein and the IRA in Northern Ireland/Ireland. Part of it will put up the facade of moderating politically a bit, but it will still be elbow deep in the militaristic part of Hamas.
