“How Will Hamas Rule?”

The subtitle is what caught my eye: “As the world threatens to cut off aid, Palestinians are bracing for life under a faith-based regime.”
The officials were elected, so why are people “bracing” themselves? Oh, and check out this priceless quote:

Despite Hamas’ victory at the polls, the Bush Administration has refused to budge from its insistence that it will not deal with a Hamas-led government–or continue to provide funding to the Palestinian Authority, which received a total of $1.1 billion in foreign aid last year–unless the group renounces violence and recognizes the Jewish state.

Like an election is going to force us to support the avowed enemy of one of our long-term allies? Just because fundamentalists elected officials that believe much the same way they do, we’re expected to change our clearly laid-out policy?
Sometimes the bias in the press just amazes me.
