ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the views of the author on issues related to the success of the organization Hamas in the recent Palestinian elections. Hamas has been around for a long time, and for most of that time, the U.S. did not label it a terrorist organization. Hamas has a military wing, but the majority of its efforts have been in providing welfare, medical care and education to dirt-poor Palestinians who would have to do without but for Hamas. Unlike the corrupt Fatah, the Palestinian party that U.S. President George W. Bush apparently wanted to win, Hamas has a reputation for being honest.
