Summary
For the first time in its history, the Palestinian parliament is set to be led by Hamas, which the United States and European Union have designated a foreign terrorist organization. Although some lauded the generally free and fair election in January 2006, others criticized the outcome and accused Hamas of "hijacking" democracy. This report provides an overview of the new political realities in the West Bank and Gaza after the election, the challenges Fatah and Hamas face, and possible implications for U.S. policy. This report will be updated as warranted. For more information on the Palestinians, see CRS Report RL33269, "Palestinian Elections," by Aaron D. Pina, CRS Issue Brief IB91137 "The Middle East Peace Talks," by Carol Migdalovitz, and CRS Report RS22370, "U.S. Assistance to the Palestinians," by Jeremy M. Sharp
