Hamas’s candidates are much better than most of our candidates…Most of our candidates are political activists, former security prisoners and commanders of armed groups. This doesn’t bode well for Fatah

So said a top Fatah official in Ramallah. Turns out Hamas is putting a professional face on their first foray into who knows if it really is legitimate politics. Their candidates include physicians, lawyers, journalists and … University profs.

Muffti has to admit being a little tempted. He hereby offers to run as a Hamas candidate if they get him instant tenure and a cushy low-teaching load professorship. It may be selling out but it sure beats the awful soul sucking horrible things legitimate avenues of getting university jobs Muffti is currently undertaking.

Thanks Jpost for a good laugh.
