... or, if you prefer, Two-Party Democracy, Palestinian-Style!Update:
There seem to be some reports of some cross-fighting between Fatah and Hamas today, as forces loyal to Fatah have reportedly tried to prevent Hamas from holding a "rally" in Gaza City and Ramallah. This rally reportedly follows an attempted assassination attempt (h/t Gateway Pundit) on Hamas leader and Prime Minister Ismael Haniyeh.
My favourite picture from the event:
We might have a couple of events being jumbled on the photo wires here. There is some "clashing" going on between the Fatah-led security forces, and "followers of" Hamas (which I'll interpret as "Hamas Thugs," as redundant as that may be. Not to preclude Fatah
from being called the same, either!). Separately, Haniyeh is hosting a "celebration" of the 19-year anniversary of the FOUNDING of Hamas.
Founded, of course, by the repugnant
Jew-killer Sheikh Ahmed Yassin
. (Ed.: Make that ex
-Jew-killer... ;) )
Funny, I don't recall hearing anything about Hamas being a "terrorist group" from the CNN International coverage on the boob tube over here. Imagine that!
Hamas: Celebrated in newsrooms around the world!Update: Allah brings the details
. This is, as he says, what happens
when one "declares war on Allah." Ace speculates that this might be part
of a larger Sunni-vs-Shi'ite war. The enemy of my enemy and all? Who's to say...Update again:
Is there a chance that all of this has been organized as a sleight of hand
? I.e., are we being misdirected
into watching these protests in order to facilitate Hamas smuggling the suitcase of cash-ola into the territories?And now, the traditional Snapped Shot Pile of Photographs
The local populace: Caught in the crossfire? Or cynically used as shields? Let the next four photos be your guide...HANG ON THERE.
Did you notice the "QAS" on the rocket above? Could that be short for QASSAM
, or as I prefer to call it, the Jew-killer
? (Note for the proprietors at that last link: Palestinian
terrorism is limitless.)
Yep, Hamas is just another peaceful political party. That's all they are.Update to the previous note:
I just love
being right... Maybe if I were as "tolerant" and "peaceful" as Nasser Ishtayeh and the jerks at the Associated Press
, I'd "understand" the media's glorification of this rally.
And now, for the Glory of Jihad! Here are some pictures of PM Haniyeh's speech at this Hamas "rally:"
This one gets my Second-Favourite
award. I'll call it, "Equal Rights, Palestinian-Style:"
Waving the flag of Jihad
, eternally. Or, as Charles calls it, Palestinian child abuse
is the "happy, peace-loving" shot that will make all of your newspapers tomorrow morning. I love
the peace sign--After all, "peace through DEATH and GENOCIDE" is still "peace," right?
