Short Democracy Update

Just a quick one today guys, exam season is upon me, and much needed revision is required!

  • Hamas has secured a majority in the Palestinian legislative elections. The truest words of the day came from the Arab League (an organisation I seldom agree with) "The US can't promote democracy but then reject the results of this democracy". The people have spoken, they must live with the consequences of their choice good or bad. Here's hoping it isn't the start of another large scale war between Palestine and Israel.
