You Want to Make A Bad Situation Worse?
Call in George W. Bush.
According to Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif, quoted in the Newsweek print edition, the Palestinian election that brought Hamas to power was a result of a Bush brainstorm.
Egypt (and Israel) advised strongly against that election. Why? Because when you hold an election in an Arab land, you may give power to a radical group. Egypt knows all about this. If Egypt held a fair election, the Moslem Brotherhood would gain power. So Egypt told Bush not to push for a Palestinian election - Hamas would gain power.
Bush did not listen.
Hamas came to power.
Hamas is totally dedicated to the destruction of Israel.
Israel will not talk to any group that is dedicated to Israel's destruction.
Peace in the Middle East is more remote that ever.
Thanks to Bush.
