64. the answer - which should be obvious to you
Have you noticed what happens when certain elements are voted in democratically to power?

Germany 1930s, Gaza 2005, Iran's "democratic" elections....

All disasters.

Those organizations gaining power didn't renounce their twisted goals beforehand. They used democracy to gain power and once in they made certain they stayed in power and accomplished their twisted goals. As bad as Lieberman is, he's nowhere near in ideology to that espoused in the Fatah charter. The PLO already has a record of rule - when they were a state within a state in Jordan, to Lebanon, and in the Palestinian territories. They don't even try to pretend to run on a platform of Western civil/human rights. The depravity that they advocate is the complete opposite.
