Those Whacky Palestinians!
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Hamas security forces opened fire Monday at a rally commemorating Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, killing five at the largest show of support for the rival Fatah movement in the Gaza Strip since Hamas seized control in June.Or to recap: The terrorist government of the Gaza Strip got mad that the terrorist citizens were celebrating the wrong terrorist, so they terrorized them.
At least 31 people were wounded, three critically, including a Hamas policeman who was shot in the head, medical officials and Fatah said.
The violence erupted after tens of thousands of Fatah supporters carrying pictures of Arafat, yellow Fatah flags and wearing trademark black-and-white Arab headdresses, gathered in a courtyard in downtown Gaza City.
It's as if Ehud Olmert sent troops out to "bullet-quell" supporters commemorating Yitzak Rabin. Unthinkable ... anywhere but in the wonderful world of Islamist despotism.
