The Purple Finger of Fate

Karma is such a beeyatch!

RAMALLAH, West Bank (AFP) - Palestinian prime minister Ahmed Qorei announced his resignation and said the radical Islamist group Hamas must form the next government after the general election.

The announcement came as Hamas looked set for a stunning victory over Fatah in the Palestinian election, plunging the stalled Middle East peace process into further turmoil.

Senior officials from Fatah, the movement which has dominated Palestinian politics for years, privately acknowledged that they had been beaten into second place by Hamas which was contesting its first parliamentary election.

The central elections commision said the official result would not be announced until 7 pm (1700 GMT), but Hamas was confident that it would now have an absolute majority in the 132-seat parliament.

Well, I guess its time for the folks at AIPAC to favor bombing the fuck all out of Gaza in retribution for this outrageous outbreak of democracy or something.

Oh well, at least the right-wing can crow about (or aboot) Canada for few months until that government falls.
