Dr. Ronnie Shaked, an expert on the Palestinians from the Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at  Hebrew University of Jerusalem, said that Hamas would likely do well in the upcoming Palestinian elections scheduled for May 22, but, like Fatah, does not actually want them to take place. He told reporter Arieh O’Sullivan that Israel should move to prevent the elections. He also blasted the Israel police for allowing Jewish radicals to march in Arab areas of the city.
