Palestinian Elections

There are many different reports coming out now on the outcome of the elections in Palestine, and I suspect it will be a day or more before we have a clear winner. But perhaps that isn’t true. All reports show that Palestinians came out in huge numbers to vote in this election, and to let their voice be heard.

This is really the first time the Palestinians have had the sense that their voice would make a difference in the war-torn country, and this was their first real shot at self determination. So the real winner in this election is the Palestinian people, who came out in droves to take some control of their own lives. Congratulations Palestinians – this is a victory long overdue!
