Le Mont de Sisyphe
My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

Hamas has won

It appears that Hamas has won the elections. Ahmed Qureia, the Prime Minister (Fatah) has resigned. Hamas will have to form a new government now. This is how it looks like when a people misses another historical opportunitiy to prove to the world that it should have a state of its own.

How's the world going to react? Will the European Union stick to its classification of Hamas as a terror organization (the European list of terror organizations is available here (.pdf))? Or will the world accept to deal with them, advancing the argument that Hamas is now democratically elected? The face of Hamas hasn't changed a bit though. Indeed, what has happened, is that the Palestinian leadership is now in the hands of people who explicitly have the same goals as Ahmadinejad and who are representatives of a bloody islamist fundamentalism. In addition, they are of course responsible for many murderous terroristic attacks against innocent civilians as well. The fact that Hamas now has democratic legitimacy is of course not unessential: It makes the issue worse. Accepting Hamas as a political partner would mean that the worst terror organizations just need to be elected in order to become suitable for the international stage. Other countries used to be called rogue states for having criminals leading them.
