Can’t beat the IDF? Take it out on your own ...
Posted by: McQ on Monday, January 19, 2009

No real surprise here. It is the usual route cowards take:
Hamas militiamen have rounded up hundreds of Fatah activists on suspicion of "collaboration" with Israel during Operation Cast Lead, Fatah members in the Gaza Strip told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

They said the Hamas crackdown on Fatah intensified after the cease-fire went into effect early Sunday morning.

The Fatah members and eyewitnesses said the detainees were being held in school buildings and hospitals that Hamas had turned into make-shift interrogation centers.


A Fatah official in Ramallah told the Post that at least 100 of his men had been killed or wounded as a result of the massive Hamas crackdown. Some had been brutally tortured, he added.
This should come as no surprise to anyone - Hamas preys on the weak and right now its own countrymen are all it has to prey on. Never has the phrase, "citizens deserve the government they elect" been more ironically true.

I know that this is going to sound mighty unpopular, and I bet I get bashed over the head for saying it, but let me be the first to say the following:

A good Palestinian is a dead Palestinian.

Hamas, Fatah, Hezbollah. They are all the same. They all want Israel gone. They all want Jewish blood on their hands to install an Islamic state in its place.

So pardon my dirge if I am unsympathetic to Hamas killing Fatah. It is as if al Qaeda killed Taliban. A dead Muslim terrorist killed by another Muslim terrorist, to me, is just another dead Muslim terrorist. But at least it keeps the maggots happy, because they like the flow of blood. It warms their insides, right before a missile hopefully hits them.

Jeese Cap! You know there’s really no ’good’ and ’bad’! Those are perceptions brought about by clinging to outdated western dogma.

Hamas isn’t bad, Israel isn’t good. We have to view things from their individual points of view, preferably standing more on the Hamas side of the world while claiming to be neutral, then filtering through the expert eyes of some professor at the UofM.

Israel is foolish, Hamas is strong.

Israel needs to agree to, errrrr, something, and Hamas will um, do something that will make Israel feel someway, and then somehow they’ll all sit down at one big table (with Jimmy Carter of course) and eat roasted goat and olives and orange slices and make nice and the world will move forward into the new age. The Israelis just need to recognize that Palistinian Gaza under Hamas has rights, and one of those rights is to eradicate the state of Israel, that’s all, see?

Easy Peasy.

Pity they can’t both lose.

On the other hand, they are Arabs, they might just find a way.

Wow James. I am SO not a fan of the Palestinians, but wow. Had you left that one line out, I’d be in agreement with you.

Anybody have a pool running on how long it will take someone in the media to draw a moral equivalence between Hamas and the U.S. on the detaining and interrogations?
