The Palestinian Voters Have Spoken

From the initial results, it shows Hamas wins handsomely against the ruling Fatah.

Mahmoud Abbas has asked Hamas to form the new government.

Subtle threats from EU and the US fail to persuade the Palestinians to retain Fatah and obviously the Palestinian voters want a change in the Palestinian Authority, which the people view as inept and corrupt.

So we hope the world, especially the Israelis, the Americans and the Europeans will accept the results and not to resort another approach like that taken in Algeria when FIS was poised the elections in the 90's.

Hopefully the fate of the Palestinians will be better in the future than the past under the previous regime. (alang bidara - 26/1/2006)
