We've definitely got something interesting going on here.
Theory #1: The simplest (and most likely) explanation is that the IDF is taking active efforts right now to eradicate Al-Aqsa. Considering that, of all of the thugs in the Territories, Al-Aqsa is the most brutal, this is completely understandable, and I congratulate my comrades in the Forces for their gallant efforts!
Theory #2: A less likely explanation (but still plausable, due to the tendency of the locals to Blame Israel First
) is that the genuine
Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades is going around wiping out members who formed a splinter group
. I can imagine that the genuine
thugs, upon hearing their former associates describe them as being "unethical," would naturally take umbrage and handle things "Mafia style." Any reasoned observer understands full well
by now that that's the only
way business gets done under the "Palestinian Authority."
Theory #3: The remotest possibility I can think of is that Hamas is making efforts to combat Fatah, by wiping out Fatah's most active "wing," and then planting evidence "suggesting" that Israel was responsible. I don't think this is the case, but I'll present it here anyway, just in case there's some shred of truth to it.[Update: Upon further reflection, I'd say that Theory #2 is the most plausible. The IDF doesn't generally take any action without at least letting their Public Affairs office know about it first... which in and of itself is a very telling commentary on the handicap placed upon itself and other Western militaries by many of the "Open Government" policies which are so popular today. But I digress...]
So, to wrap up, in the past few days, we have had a new terror group formed
. Less than twelve
hours later, its leader is "murderated."
next day, another Al-Aqsa member (by this time the press has completely forgotten about "Abu Ammar"
) is gunned down in a cafe by "The IDF," which could be true, or could be the locals' traditional Jew-Blaming. I didn't report on that incident, since it didn't seem to be connected at the time. And just now, a group of Al-Aqsa terrorists just happen to "exploderate" whilst "Driving While Jihadi."
This is truly turning out to be a fascinating week for Al-Aqsa. In the best possible sense of the word. To whomever is doing this:—Please keep up the great work! Any efforts to "thin the Thugocrat herd" are commendable, and my hat is certainly off to you for your efforts!
I'll miss the dopey-looking idiots
, but the world is definitely better off without them.Update:
The obligatory crocodile tears can now be found beyond the fold.
Notice the similarity of the next two shots--these photographers are standing right next to each other, at the exact same time:
