John: You used to live in Israel - Palestine, and ought to know better! Hamas is in charge in Gaza because they forced out the Fatah backed Palestinian Authority last year. That they "won" an election with a unique vote weighting arrangement before that had nothing to do with Hamas' control of Gaza.

How about some thoughtful inquiry into why Hamas is talking to Israel -- which they have sworn to destroy -- and why Olmert is talking with Hamas?
