So what do we think about Hamas' victory?

Aha! - you thought. Now, after all these months, SimplyJews will start yakking about politics, peace and all that stuff and provide you their political platform.

No way!

While we are not averse to occasional yakking about all of the above, we try to do it on other's blogs - this way these others get all the pain in the neck, while we continue our trouble-free virtual, cynically-satirical existence.

However, a blog that does not relate to the Hamas, Fatah and all this shit these days, is considered to be, how to say it - politically retarded. To pay our dues and get out of this situation, I have found a blog-saving formula. Instead of kvetching myself on the subject, I am offering our faithful readers (all 12.5 of them - on average) a complete, irrevocable and eternal view on that thorny subject. All this courtesy of Akaky Bashmachkin of The Passing Parade, who thought he is just leaving a comment. In fact this comment appeared to be a complete guide to the whole shitty business. Here it comes, and thanks to Akaky.

So let me get this straight: people are annoyed that the party that wants to destroy Israel won the elections against the other party that wants to destroy Israel, but won't actually come out and say so at the moment. Since everyone knew that the governing party that wants to destroy Israel but wont come out and say so really does want to destroy Israel whether they say so or not, why is everyone so concerned that the party that wants to destroy Israel won the election, since by definition both of the parties involved want to destroy Israel, except that the second party that wants to destroy Israel finds it politic at the moment not to mention that they want to destroy Israel just as much as the other party that wants to destroy Israel but has no qualms about bringing up the fact that they want to destroy Israel, unlike the party that wants to destroy Israel but doesn't want to come out and say that they want to destroy Israel. There is a theme here, isn't there, or have I missed something along the way?

No, Akaky - you have not missed anything, and many thanks.
