The good news from last week's election in the Irish Republic is that Sinn Féin, the party of terrorism, bank robbery, and cop-killing, garnished with half-baked sub-Marxist economic theories, achieved only a 0.4 percent increase in its first-preference votes, and actually lost one of its seats in the Irish parliament. Gerry Adams, the Sinn Féin leader, had predicted a doubling of their number of parliamentary seats, from 5 to 10; instead they have gone from 5 to 4. The "boost" for SF from all the publicity about their participation in the new power-sharing arrangement in Northern Ireland failed to happen, confirming the view of us cynics that hardly anyone in the Republic gives a fig about Ulster.But how long will it take for Palestinians to really wise up?
