(p.171) 6 Hamas after Electoral Victory
Promoting Democracy

NYU Press

This chapter examines the aftermath of Hamas’ 2006 legislative election victory. It argues that the developments that transpired were not simply the result of the international embargo and Western donor cessation of funding. Rather, the non-inclusive settlement, in this case, defined by the Oslo Accords, and dominant Palestinian groups who upheld these accords, could not accommodate these election results. Although the international embargo and Western donors refusal to accept the results exacerbated prevailing dynamics, mayhem would have transpired regardless.

Keywords:   Hamas, 2006 Palestinian legislative elections, Western donor community sanctions, Western donor embargo
