Well, That Didn't Take Long: Palestinian Politics II

Earlier in the day I speculated what the outcome of the recent victory of the Hamas thugs over the Fatah crooks in the recently concluded Palestine Parliament elections might be.

Word wasn't long in coming.

According to UPI, three people were wounded in a slugfest that broke out at a mosque in Khan Younis as a pro Fatah imam gave a sermon that was critical of Hamas. The article also points out that 9 of the new electees are serving time in jails, mostly in Israel. That means seven per cent of the Palestinian Parliament are in jail.

In addition thousands of Fatah supporters demonstrated in Gaza and various venues in the West Bank, burning cars and discharging weapons and demanding that corrupt Fatah fnctionaries resign their posts in the government and otherwise make no peace with the Hamasistas.

Lastly, Reuters reports that the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade factions of Fatah have announced that they will "liquidate" Fatah leaders who decide to join a Hamas administration.
