Since there is no such thing as democracy for the Arabs in the territories, student elections take up a lot of media attention as a bellwether to how each party would do if there ever was another real election.

Last month Fatah won the student council election at An Najah University in Nablus.

But Wednesday, Hamas won the elections at Bir Zeit University, winning 25 seats to Fatah's 22.

Political observers across the country closely watch the Birzeit student elections. The university is a hub of political activism, and the student vote is considered a reflection of the Palestinian political climate. Many Palestinian political and community leaders have graduated from Birzeit.

Bir Zeit is in Ramallah, the center of the Fatah-dominated government.

Even though most polls show Fatah with a lead in theoretical elections, it is not so clear that Hamas wouldn't win the way they did in 2006.

The third place party with 4 seats was the student arm of the leftist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

For some reason, no Western media outlet bothers to note that every single party to gain seats in these elections also happens to be a terrorist group that openly advocates "armed resistance."

Every single one.

Palestinian democracy, such as it is, is giving the people the choice of one terror group over another.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
