Hamas fighters overran one of the rival Fatah movement's most important security installations in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, and witnesses said the victors dragged vanquished gunmen from the building and killed them in the street.No independent confirmation on the killing them in the street part, but the media spin is predictable:
The moderate President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah, for the first time in five days of fierce fighting, ordered his elite presidential guard to strike back. But his forces were crumbling fast under the onslaught by the better-armed and better-disciplined Islamic fighters.Translation from MSM Speak, gang leader Abbas's murderous punks aren't as tough as the Hamas punks, and besides Hamas is getting better bang bang stuff from Egypt. Must have a special deal with the Egyptians, without whom, by the way, these rival gang shit heads would be reduced to fighting with pointed sticks. Hamas probably paid somebody off bigtime.
The MSM is now dignifying this with the title "Civil War", but really its a case of two criminal gangs fighting over turf. Change the names Hamas and Fatah to get a better idea of what is going on. Crips vs. Bloods in San Diego, with RPGs and mortars they bought from Mexico using money they got from the UN and the EU. But less organized.
Whoever comes out on top is going to be the next bunch of a-holes the Israelis are expected to "negotiate" with. Kind of a special revelation on the complete futility of the Mid-East Peace Process. Looks like Israel had the right idea with the Wall. Put up a fence and let the rats duke it out over UN table scraps.
Speaking of the UN, lets see how much aid the Egyptians sends to help their suffering brothers and sisters in their time of need. I'm betting they send zippo, other than selling the bastards more ammo.
