The Hamas election in the Palestinian territories was disturbing to many. But not to all. Some were happy--extremely happy.
There's a concept in political science called "objective allies." That is, even people who hate each other can still find common ground--by, for example, hating others even more. In the past century's Europe, the communists and fascists of Europe agreed on nothing, except that they both, from their respective extremes, hated the centrists. And so both Reds and Browns would be objective allies, as both sought to tear down moderate parties and governments.
