So you don't like Hamas eh?
no, I don't. Not because they're religious fanatics--that's incidental (or causative: sometimes I wonder if they were insane before they subbed to Hamas ideology). Their genocidal tendencies also don't endear them to me.
it's also because of their propensity of getting Palestinians killed at rates unseen since 1948....by giving the Israelis the excuse to rocket the ever loving shit out of Gaza, they're in many ways worse. the one thing going for them is that they aren't corrupt, but then, the insane rarely are.
but as we live in a crazy world, they won the 2006 legislative seats, and caused Gaza to split off from West bank.
don't like Fatah either (who are socialistic, and corrupt as hell)--so neither major party is much good*. And in case you're wondering, the other parties are staffed by communists or socialists (and they're a substantial minority: 8-15% of the seats)--and I don't mean the half-assed types you find in Europe. if there's one thing we really don't have, it's subtlety.
the only thing they have in common is that they all hate Israel (hatred of Jews themselves varies from mild to well past NAZI levels), and have a nationalist bend to them.
and no, there is no Libertarian party or organization there, and frankly, considering the social attitudes, it would have less luck than it does in the US, or Germany...or Russia. I'd start it, but, I'd be dead within a week, and to no advantage. If I'm to be killed, might as well not be in vain.
speaking of which, that's what the situation reminds me of: Russia in 1917: defeated, hungry, with shitty government, and lots of reds. wouldn't be shocked if it wound up the same way.*assuming I had no choice at all, I'd go with Fatah--reluctantly. As I haven't been hit on the head enough times and do have a choice, they can lick my ass.
