Partners in blood, partners in decision-making

Hamas is doing well in local Palestinian elections. Fatah is making a stronger showing, as was to be expected. Read the whole article (both pages) and contemplate this: what do you think a debate between a Fatah candidate and a Hamas candidate would be like? "I would like to kill more Jews, but the civilized world says I shouldn't, so maybe I will not until such time as the civilized world no longer cares what I do" vs. "I shall kill all Jews and bathe in their blood, as is my solemn duty. That other guy is a sissy because he wants to stop killing Jews for a minute or two."
