The American media is trying not to cover the ongoing civil war in the Palestinian terrortories (that is not a typo), hoping that the subhumans in charge of the place will make up and start bombing Jews in Israel again. That appears to be a dwindling hope, as the "violence" is now out of control.
Hamas-Fatah violence continues; 20 dead
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Gunmen from the rival Hamas and Fatah movements battled in Gaza City for a third straight day Saturday, firing mortars and grenades in clashes that killed two men in the increasingly bloody power struggle over the Palestinian government.
The deaths brought to 20 the number of Palestinians killed since late Thursday, with at least 66 people wounded and efforts to forge a coalition government at a standstill.
The latest fighting, which started late Thursday after a Hamas activist was killed in a bombing, has been among the deadliest in nearly two months of clashes.
Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas issued a statement calling for calm.
But in a clear jab at the moderate Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah, Haniyeh criticized "troublemakers who are trying to veer away from the path of our people" by receiving "dirty American funding and arms." The White House is seeking some $85 million to help bolster Abbas' forces.
As we have said before, let us all stand back and allow these thugs to slaughter each other in ever increasing numbers. It does two things: it keeps Muslims fighting each other, and it keeps them from blowing up innocent Jews, both of which are good things. Here's to more "violence" among Palestinians!
