Hamas Wins

The Palestinians have elected a terrorist organization, whose stated aim is to kill "Jews", to represent them as a government:

GAZA (Reuters) - The Islamic militant Hamas group swept to victory over the long-dominant Fatah party on Thursday in Palestinian parliamentary polls, a political earthquake that could bury any hope for reviving peace talks with Israel soon.

The shock outcome, acknowledged by Fatah ahead of official results, does not automatically unseat President Mahmoud Abbas, a moderate elected last year after Yasser Arafat's death. But he has said he might resign if unable to pursue a peace policy.

Of course, that's Reuters news service lying again. Abbas is not a moderate. He is a Jew-hater, who wrote his doctoral thesis on how the Jews conspired with Hitler to create the Holocaust so that they could engender sympathy for their people.

Does that sound like a "moderate" view?

But, that's beside the point today. The point is, Hamas say, quite openly, that they want to kill Jews, and the Palestinians elected them.

Gee, why would they do that?

And, why doesn't Reuters, or the world's other major media report it?
