Hamas: Palestinians have Spoken

Mahmoud Abbas-led Fatah party, the party that runs the Palestinian National Authority. The people simply wanted a change. The 78 percent voters’ turnout during the elections was a manifestation of the people's determination and conviction. And what happened afterwards has been history.

It’s up to Hamas to understand the real meaning of this victory and do the right thing: leave the AK 49s and rockets at home and work diligently towards catering to the needs of the electorate and finding lasting peace to the region. This will lend even greater meanings to the their victory on the long run.

I really look forward to when the US will receive the next Palestinian President at the White House. Will that person be a member of the Hamas organization?
