Hamas And Fatah Ensure Palestinians Get Their Two State Solution

by | 17th, June 2007

WHEN Palestinians vote, they do so for this lot:

So, the Palestinians have got their “two state solution”, even if it’s not quite the thing they, or the rest of the world, envisaged. The homicidal fundamentalists of Hamas now control the Gaza Strip, while the corrupt and incompetent Fatah controls the West Bank enclaves of Hebron, Nablus and Ramallah (although let’s see how long that lasts: I give it three months). That’s the choice the Palestinians have when they go to the polls: happy-go-lucky Hamas versus the good old PLO, Fatah – and the people, the voters, seem to like it.

If a third party came along that was simultaneously corrupt, incompetent, homicidal and fundamentalist it would probably clean up in Palestine…

Who says democracy doesn’t work?
