Hamas and Elections

It is funny and contradictory why Israel would want to stifle Hamas participation in elections in Palestine. I would like to think that Hamas participation in Palestinian "democracy" would lessen the possibility of "terrorist" attacks against Israel. This action on the part of Isreal tells me three things right off the bat-

1) There will be no fair elections in Palestine
2) Israel wants to keep their relationship with Hamas in a confrontational, instead of political, mode.
3) Basically, Israel will NOT let Palestinians have a voice, thus throwing a roadblock in the way of a Palestinian state.

While the United States spends billions to supposedly bring "freedom and democracy" to Iraq, we give billions to a nation that stifles democracy in the most blatant of ways!
