Palestine: Hamas Won!

A lot of reactions to Hamas winning elections in Palestine. Nas summaries some of these, then talks about after-shock. Shaden says, “that’s what Palestinians inside want, you either support them or not but don't think you have the right to choose for them“, Khalaf writes about the implications on Jordan, Firas says “this is a sad day” and Sabbah is saying “we are back to nowhere.”
