British Foreign Minister Jack Straw has reassured English Parliament, the Palestinian people and Palestinian leadership that: "none of us have any interest whatever in, as it were, punishing the Palestinian people for giving the wrong answer in the elections ..."
Thank you, Jack Straw, for putting your cards on the table.
In other words, Britain is promising to aid to the newly elected Hamas Palestinian Authority.
The unmentioned, silent, caveat is that monetary aid will be cut off to the Palestinians if it is used to fund terrorist activities.
I am predicting that most of the European Union will follow suit.
As opposed to first having the newly-elected Palestinian Authority prove itself and then offer support, support will be forthcoming until such time as the PA proves itself unworthy of support.
The old Palestinian leadership used its money to sponsor terror to such an extreme extent that the United States Congress passed a law preventing US dollars being sent to the PA until they changed their ways and proved worthy.
Congress is still waiting.
