How Palestinians Win Student Elections

Via CoP Daily Alert:

Hamas defeated Arafat’s Fatah in the Bir Zeit University student elections Wednesday, after a campaign which focused on which party had killed the most Israelis.

At a debate, the Hamas candidate asked the Fatah candidate: “Hamas activists in this university killed 135 Zionists. How many did Fatah activists from Bir Zeit kill?”

Fatah set up models of Jewish settlements and then blew them up with fireworks. Hamas countered by blowing up models of Israeli buses.

Hamas activists carried samples of homemade Qassam rockets – often fired at settlements and Israeli towns that border the Gaza Strip.

The university near Ramallah is considered the most liberal of the Palestinian higher education institutions.

Just lovely. More details here.

  1. Imagine the cold war had gone another way…
    America lived under crushing military occupation of say, China or Russia
    If you had grown up in this situation, would you become politicized and be a resistance fighter? Or would you sit back and sing kumbaya
    Just curious

  2. Babylonian-
    Imagine that the Arabs hadnt attacked Jews before there was even a state. Imagine that the arabs hadnt attacked Jews before there were any ‘occupied’ terrtories.
    Living in an imaginary world must be fun.
