Predictions abound

I see some are predicting a weak Israeli government and new elections in 2006. I am not. We’ll see who is right soon enough. The rest is the blablabla of pundits. [Who? Me?-ed. No. Me.]

MEANWHILE: Joel Greenburg of the Chicago Tribune wrote the following: The outcome stood in contrast to recent Palestinian elections in which the militant group Hamas, which refuses to recognize or negotiate with Israel, won a landslide victory. Hello, Joel. It was not a landslide victory at all, as most commentators now realize. Hamas was able to capitalize on a split in Fatah. Please read the papers.
