Reactions to Hamas Victory?Reactions to Hamas Victory
What do Tim LaHaye and other prophecy experts have to say about the Hamas victory and the possible consequences?

On the eve of the Palestinian elections, it appeared the Fatah party had held control, though the Hamas party—a sponsor of much of the terrorism against Israel, several of whose candidates were in Israeli prisons—had made surprising gains.

Even as the headlines of many U.S. newspapers the next morning proclaimed an apparent Fatah victory, by the time people picked up those papers it was obvious Hamas had achieved a stunning upset.
