Palestinian police today fought gunbattles in Gaza City with a rival Hamas-led security force set up by the Islamist government in defiance of President Mahmoud Abbas.
At least four people were wounded in the first fighting between the groups – two police, one member of the Hamas force and a gunman from Mr Abbas’s Fatah movement.
Intense clashes sent terrified residents fleeing from the night-time streets of Gaza City, where tension has soared amid fears that confrontation between the forces could lead to civil war.
Well, obviously. Those in the midst of the mayhem agree:
“It seems that the civil war has begun,” said one medic, who did not want to give his name …
Even SBS news is running with the civil war line. But how to blame this on Bush?
UPDATE. Resident peacenik Addamo explains why Bush is to blame for the Hamas-Fatah conflict:
Not that difficult.
– Powell did say to Bush, you break it, you own it. Iraq is more than broken.
– It is accepted that security of an ocupied state is the responsibility of the occupying power.
– The deaths squads operating out of the Ministry of the Interior (which was set up by the US) are causing mayhem.
– Obviously the democracy idea is a shamble. So who benefits from a fragmented Iraq vs a united Iraq that is run by an Iran friendly regime?
Then again, it could all be Saddam’s fault.
Poor kid is a little confused. Commenters are dealing with him in Mode Four fashion.
