FLASHBACK - Hamas Sweeps Palestinian Elections, Complicating Peace Efforts in Mideast

The radical Islamic movement Hamas won a large majority in the new Palestinian parliament, according to official election results announced Thursday, trouncing the governing Fatah party in a contest that could dramatically reshape the Palestinians' relations with Israel and the rest of the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this story because the few corporate media outlets reporting the story on the United Nations Human Rights Council try to justify Israel's actions by claiming that HAMAS "violently" seized control of Gaza in 2007. The below example from AP is typical.

The truth is that HAMAS won the elections.

Let me repeat that, HAMAS WON THE ELECTIONS! It was FATAH that tried and failed to seize control of Gaza in 2007, goaded by Israel and the US which support democracy in Palestine only so long as the Palestinians vote for who they are told to vote for!

Please copy this link and append it to every newspaper report that allows comments (most do not on this particular story) in which the claim is made that HAMAS "seized" Gaza.

The corporate media bovine excrement has hit flood stage today!
