Democratically elected?

I dont watch US TV news anymore but heard a few minutes in the car on CNN and it was enough to let me know all I need to know about the coverage.  Michael Oren was on CNN and he talked about Israel being "the only democratically elected government".  Israeli propaganda needs to be updated: that line works with regard to Egypt and Jordan and Syria but no more applies to Gaza. Hamas government in Gaza is in fact democratically elected (in the most free election which was only marred by the infusion of US and Gulf money to sway the results) and the only reason why another election has not take place is due to US objections because they can't guarantee the victory of the clients of occupation, Fath.
