Captain Ed Morissey put it best, commenting,
Elections have consequences, as I noted in another context. Part of those consequences is a clear understanding of what the Palestinians want as a people. They voted for the radical terrorists, and more importantly, never bothered to form a separate political party based on peaceful coexistence with Israel. They left themselves a choice between Fatah and Hamas. Had they been serious about peace, the voters would have formed a third party based on that goal and overwhelmingly supported it.
I agree. Hamas can whistle for my money until they actually realize that their election victory means that their hateful rhetoric has come home to roost. The West is not obligated to give them money. they are now reaping what they have for so long sown. They will earn our help or our enmity by their future actions. At present however, they have earned nothing but our disdain.
