It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.
Considering that the Palestinian people have duly elected terrorists to head their government, and that the elected head of Iran is another in the mold of Hitler, Democracy may not be the best solution. Except that it is. There just isn’t a better way of ensuring that people get the government they deserve, in the best and worst ways.
Hammas will have to learn to take the blame for a poorly run government, blame that was fairly laid at Fatah’s feet before. The former Fatah government was thoroughly corrupt, as was Arafat’s government before. Now Hammas will have to fend for itself, no Fatah to blame, no Arafat, no Sharon, just themselves. Of course, now they will have to make the choice between Western aide and militant activity against Israel. There again, democracy is in action. You can choose your government, we can choose not to send money. Simple stuff, really.
