HAMAS AND DEMOCRACY: THE HYPOCRISY OF BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY WILLIAM HAGUE.

At a press conference in London yesterday with PA President Mahmoud Abbas, William Hague, Britains Foreign Secretary, told his audience that “Hamas should not be allowed to stifle the democratic expression of Palestinian opinion”.

While it is true that Hague was not Foreign Secretary at the time when Hamas won 72 out of 132 seats in the Palestinian elections of January 2006, he did support Tony Blair’s Labour government decision, along with the US and Israel, to not recognise Hamas’s historic electoral victory. That is to say, Hague had no problem at all in ‘stifling the democratic expression of Palestinian opinion’ back in 2006.

Hague’s stance typifies Western right-wing arrogance and hypocrisy over the Palestine debate.
