Self-Proclaimed Hamas Experts
I'm losing patience with all of the people informing us that - to our great surprise - in fact, Hamas' victory in the PA elections is the best thing for Israel.
Yes, I understand the arguments. Fatah is just as bad; now everyone will understand who the Palestinians are; this will eliminate any pressure for Israeli concessions, etc.
Maybe these ideas will prove to be accurate. I think that to a large extent they are naive. Either way, they depend on Israel's ability to make the right decisions, to withstand pressure for many years to come, and for Europe and the U.S. to maintain the stance they are initially taking.
To confidently reach the conclusion that the taking over of Judea, Samaria and Gaza by a terror group allied with Iran is good for Israel is sophomoric.
