While illegal immigration is, undeniably, a big problem in Western countries, methods of tackling it are not always efficient. Countries continuously introduce new laws, which sometimes only make matters worse. Balancing the costs and benefits of immigration is a difficult process; nevertheless, factually, the latter seem to be heavier. Thus, would it be smart to prevent immigrants from coming? What would be an effective method? Should they be controlled rather then stopped completely?

Recently I have had many discussions with people who have suggested that there is no chance that Hamas would be allowed to form and lead a new Palestinian government. They were continuously trying to prove to me that extremist organizations do not have "what it takes" to be in power. Therefore, I found it reasonable to share my arguments by comparing the situation in Palestine with that in Kosovo, and suggest why Hamas would moderate and be successful in Palestine.
