The taming of Hamas?

Can't help but feel the best reaction the "international community" (there's a joke) could have to the recent Palestinian election is to ignore the fact of who was elected and pretend it's really still Fatah in power, sticking their fingers in their ears and shouting LALALALALA if someone says the H-word.

If the Shinners are any guide, the best way of neutering them is to turn them into, essentially, class traitors by drowning them in money, ministries and motorcades. There will always the residual "Ruairi Bin Bradaigh" types left screaming for martyrdom but the "Peace Process" moved faster in NI when the ban on having Grizzly Adams on the telly was lifted and even faster once they got into Stormont.
