Add comment on:Palestinian elections: A democratic exercise in futility
Electronic Intifada (repost)
At first glance, the beginning of 2005 seems like a fresh breath in Israel-Palestine -- the U.S. and Israel have just seen the death of the "non-partner" Yasser Arafat, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is pushing his Gaza disengagement plan, and this weekend the Palestinians will be having their first presidential elections in nearly ten years. But time will likely prove that these are false prospects for hope, and that the region, and the Palestinians in particular, will continue to gasp for a resolution to the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
