Gang Warfare In Gaza

Thugs. Murderers. Vicious gangs. These asshats are no more a political party or a country than the Mafia was. At least the Mafia understood the concept of honor and mainly kept their wars to themselves. The Paleosimians understand nothing - except killing. When they’re not kiling Israelis, they’re killing eah other. I read the news article below and my first thought was that these freaks haven’t changed one bit in five thousand years.

They are still bedouin tribes killing each other and anyone who gets in their way over any convenient feud they can manufacture to justify more bloodshed. The only thing that has changed is now they live in concrete cities, wear blue jeans and carry Kalashnikovs. Underneath, they are still the same mindless savages that they were when Hammurabi tried to get them to sit down and STFU many ages ago.

Then again, if I lived in an ass-backward country where alcohol was banned, the only steak you can order is camel, everyone is poor except the leader’s family, women are always wrapped in burlap sacks and some madman was screaming at me five times a day from a tower - I’d probably be a little nuts too.

May 9, 2006, 1:26 AM EDT

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP)—Nine Palestinians were wounded early Tuesday in renewed clashes between the Hamas and Fatah factions in downtown Gaza City, witnesses and paramedics say.

The clashes erupted after Hamas gunmen arrived at the home of a top Fatah official and opened fire at Fatah activists inside, witnesses said. The Fatah gunmen returned fire and nine were injured in the exchange, including five schoolchildren, hospital officials said. At least one of the wounded was a Hamas gunmen, officials said. No further details were available regarding the identity of the wounded.

According to Hamas officials, bodyguards working for Samir Mashrawi, a top Fatah leader in Gaza, kidnapped three members of the Hamas military wing earlier in the morning and the Hamas gunmen had arrived on the scene to free them. Fatah officials denied the accusations.

Tuesday’s clashes follow Monday’s events, in which militants from Hamas and Fatah clashed in Gaza with assault rifles and shoulder-held missiles, killing three people, in the latest sign that the rivals could be heading toward a large-scale confrontation.

Bystanders gathered to watch Tuesday’s clashes in downtown Gaza City, as mosque loudspeakers encouraged them to flee the scene. An early morning meeting between both factions called for restraint, but tensions remained high as the sides accused each other of instigating the violence.

Friction has been rising since the Islamic militant group Hamas ended Fatah’s four-decade control of Palestinian politics with a victory in January parliament elections.

Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas and moderate Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah have been wrangling over power, particularly over control of the security forces. The friction has been compounded by a growing financial crisis, the result of Western economic sanctions against the Hamas-led government. The two leaders met twice over the weekend but failed to resolve their differences.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
