Socioeconomic causes and worries seem to have been the motivating factor driving voters.
The security situation has been almost accepted as a given; that at this present moment it is livable with.
The peace process is not going anywhere.
Abbas has little legitimacy due to the extension of his position as PA President, without new elections.
Hamas has been quiet unequivocal in their stance towards peace with Israel(total destruction of Israel).
Israel can’t/won’t allow the Palestinian right of return, and the Palestinians can’t/won’t settle for anything less.
And the situation of the Jewish refugees needs to be addressed as well.
So all in all, the ‘peace process is at an impasse, trumped at the moment by economic issues.

Alternative proposed defintion: that which affirms something, then runs heard like into another name to start all over again.
