The man Bush acclaimed as the "champion of freedom & democracy", Ariel Sharon, has revealed himself as the colonial master of the Palestinian people by stating that HAMAS shall not be permitted to participate in the Palestinian elections - yes he mentioned the Palestinian, not the Israeli elections.
Sharon vowed that if Abbas allows HAMAS to participate, Israel will impose roadblocks on the West Bank or other measures to bugger the Palestinian elections. He added arrogantly that he can’t see how the Palestinians could have elections without Israeli cooperation.
There you are, you have it from the Overlord of the Palestinian people. He decides who they vote for.
