On Monday the Canadian voters exercised outstanding common sense by sending the corrupt Liberals packing off to the wilderness and giving very short reins to Stephen Harper and the CPC. As one CPC MP put it in some very positive spin probably based in truth, "The voters are not sure of the CPC but decided to give us a test drive." So expect Canada to carefully inch its way from the precipice that twelve years of Liberal rule had driven it to but hopefully without any excess.
Alas the same can not be said for the Palestinian Authorty and its elections. Where the Canadians chose a path of moderation in electing a minority CPC government, the Palestinians have chosen extremism by electing the terrorist group Hamas to Parliament with at least 70 seats. So expect the violence to ramp up in Israel as Hamas drives the PA off the cliff while making Yassir Arafat's Fatah party look like tea-totalers.
