The quote in question is this:
Indeed, Hamas's victory has set off a debate whether the administration was so wedded to its belief in democracy that it could not see the dangers of holding elections in regions where Islamist groups were strong and democratic institutions weak.
"There is a lot of blame to go around," said Martin Indyk, a top Middle East negotiator in the Clinton administration, referring to Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, and his Fatah party. "But on the American side, the conceptual failure that contributed to disaster was the president's belief that democracy and elections solve everything."
What the fuck is it with liberals that makes democracy such a scary thing? It's almost as if they're saying that so long as the Palestinian Arabs aren't allowed to elect their own leaders, the actual preference of the Palestinian Arabs for terror wouldn't exist.
I, for one, am thrilled with the Palestinian elections. They showed the world that the Palestinian Arabs are nothing more than foaming at the mouth, rabid dogs who care about nothing more than spreading violence, intolerance and hate. Whether or not there was an election wouldn't have changed this. It's not as if the election caused the Palestinian Arabs to embrace terror.
It's good that they now will have a government that can't seem to hide behind the thin veil of two-faced diplomacy, as Fatah did. Getting out of Gaza was Israel's first brilliant move to pave the way for the destruction of the Palestinian Arab terror machine. Now that Hamas will be in charge, we all know that it won't be long before they let loose with the terror attacks.
Since Hamas won't deny what they've done, Israel will have free reign, unlike ever before, to launch a massive military response. Hopefully, the response won't be a measured one. It should be, in the spirit of what I've posted below, a real war, one that has been brewing for a long time, where no Palestinian Arab "civilian" is off limits and where Gaza becomes the free fire killing field it deserves to be. I only wish Sharon were able to witness, if not lead, it.
Now, the second paragraph of that quote above is the beaut..."But on the American side, the conceptual failure that contributed to disaster was the president's belief that democracy and elections solve everything." That's such a perfect example of the liberal, Clintoonian way of looking at things. It's incredible that someone, let alone the turkey Indyk, would be so idiotic as to say that allowing people to show their true colors and make their choices is a bad thing. This is the same group of liberals who insisted that when the American people elected Bush it was not legitimate, simply because there was no way that America could have preferred a leader who wasn't a liberal.
Yes, because as long as we can paint the bloodthirsty savage Palestinian Arabs with a happy face, as Clintoon did, it means that the terrorism goes away. Right, Indyk?
