Official: Hamas does not need internal electionHere's what I think happened:
GAZA, March 24 (Xinhuanet) -- Islamic resistance movement Hamas senior leader Sa'eed Seyam announced on Wednesday that there is no need for an internal election in Hamas after Abdel Aziz Ranteesi was chosen to be the leader of the movement in the Gaza Strip.
He said that "it was natural that Ranteesi would automatically become the leader of the movement in the Gaza Strip as he was a deputy to Sheikh Yassin."
- Hamas Sergeant-At-Arms: "All those wishing to assume the mantle of spiritual leader of Hamas, please step forward."
Everyone except Ranteesi takes a step back.
Hamas SAA: "Thank you, Sheik Ranteesi for volunteering. Allah Akbar!"
Ranteesi starts mumbling something about "not volunteering".

Hamas chose hard-liner Abdel Aziz Rantisi on Tuesday to replace the militant group's founder who was assassinated by Israel a day earlier.

Israel's police minister, Tzahi Hanegbi, warned that "anyone who is involved in terrorism in Gaza or the West Bank ... knows after yesterday's assassination that no one is immune."...
