Palestinian in-fighting after elections

Hamas Victory Rally Erupts Into Shootout
Associated Press - Jerusalem

JERUSALEM Jan 29, 2005 — A political rally by the militant Palestinian group Hamas turned violent Saturday, as supporters of the rival Fatah faction opened fire, sparking a melee that left more than 25 people wounded, a Palestinian official said.

The incident in the Maghazi refugee camp in central Gaza was the first instance of violence between rival Palestinian factions since the election of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in early January.


The Palestinian official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Hamas supporters chanted victory slogans, angering Fatah supporters in the area.

One of the Fatah supporters opened fire, seriously wounding one Hamas supporters and causing shrapnel wounds to four others, the official said. Some 25 other people were hurt by knives, clubs and beatings in the ensuing melee, the official said.


Obviously the Dems need to set up some of their infamous "anger management" classes in Palestine.... LOL!

Look at the bright side. If these hotheads keep it up, Israel won't have much to do but sit back and wait for them to destroy each other!
