Good news for Hamas, bad news for Fatah

By KHALED ABU TOAMEH 06/24/2012 21:02 Hamas was quick to welcome the election of Egypt's Morsy, while Fatah in the West Bank appeared to be less enthusiastic.

Mohamed Morsyís victory in the Egyptian presidential election is seen by Palestinians as a symbolic triumph for Hamas, which is an offshoot of the new presidentís Muslim Brotherhood organization.

Hamas leaders were quick to welcome the election of Morsy, while Fatahís representatives in the West Bank appeared to be less enthusiastic.

In separate statements issued in the Gaza Strip, the two men hailed the election of the Muslim Brotherhood candidate as an historic victory for the Palestinians.
