The American media, in full defeat mode on Iraq, is more than happy to tell the dolts watching them that each death in Iraq is part of that country's "civil war." How so? When one Muslim kills another in Iraq, it is a civil war.
Continuing other violence, the Palestinians are fighting amongst themselves - and killing themselves. Today a car with 3 children in it was fired upon, killing all 3. One group of Palestinians killing another group of Palestinians - what is that? A civil war? Of course not, says the US media. They label this "a sectarian incident."
3 Palestinian kids dead in Gaza drive-by
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Gunmen killed the three young sons of a Palestinian security officer targeted twice before for assassination by Hamas, riddling the car taking them to school with more than 60 bullets — and raising the specter of open war between Fatah and the Islamic group.
Intelligence officials accused the ruling Hamas Party of being behind the drive-by shooting, unprecedented in its brutality even for violence-wracked Gaza. The officer had helped crack down on Hamas a decade ago and was twice before targeted by assassins, but was not in the car with his children Monday morning.
At the funeral, mourners held aloft the small bodies of the boys wrapped in white burial shrouds. "I have no words. Words stop at the extent of this crime," said the bereaved father, Baha Balousheh. "I am a father who has lost his children."
Even more hilarious, the BBC, that friend of the Palestinians, calls this "tit for tat violence."
Yep, those tits are in full machine gun mode.
Outrage over killing of Gaza boys
The attack comes amid growing tension between the rival Palestinian factions, Hamas and Fatah.
It is bound to inflame the situation, the BBC's Middle East analyst Roger Hardy says.
The clear danger is that political differences will lead to an escalation of tit-for-tat violence, he says.
We eagerly await the first American media outlet calling the fighting amongst Palestinians as "bordering on civil war." But we will not hold our breath.
