All he wanted was a little peace and quiet:

Fatah gunmen shot to death Abu Ahmed Hassouna, 44, a party leader in Nablus after he told them to stop shooting at campaign posters on his house, relatives said.

The killing is described as “politically motivated”.

    1. I suppose why shoot at posters when the real thing presents itself.

    1. Abu got the only “peace” Palestinian are eager to provide, peace of the grave.

    1. Oh, yeah, these people are ready to have their own country.

      Wait, what am I talking about? This is the Arab world. They’ll be pillars of civic rectitude by those standards.

    1. They were shooting at the posters because they were angry.

      They were angry because it’s been rather hot, (and somewhat humid).

      It’s been hot because of global warming.

      Er, “climate change”.

      It’s been climate change because Halliburton™.

    1. You watch. When the elections are over, the whole world will complain about Israel stifling the Palestinian democratic process.

      In fact, what we have just seen is the Palestinian democratic process.

    1. we should run a sweep on how long before Israel and/or the US is blamed.

    1. When man A asks man B to stop shooting at his (man A’s) house and is killed by man B, man B is a murderer, criminal and bloody lunatic.

      If man A asks man B to stop shooting at the campaign posters on his (man A’s) house and is killed by man B, man B is not a cretin with a gun – he is a prisoner of conscience.

    1. What a bunch of nutbags???  Really, it seems like the elections in Iraq were even a safer/more orderly process than this dog’s breakfast, and thats saying something in that hell hole…

      I love this quote

      “Everyone agreed to keep the election process moving in a smooth, clean and honest way in order to create the fundamental basis for a political partnership,” said Abu Obeida, a Hamas spokesman.

      These guys wouldn’t know what honesty was if it came up and bit them on the behind!!!!  Wonder who they’ll get to monitor it??  And will they be game to go out and tell them to stop the shooting/harassing of voters???

    1. How do you get to be a party leader over there?
      Probably not by being peaceful or quiet.

    1. I never tire watching the antics of Palestinian politics, the same way I enjoy watching a sewerage system break under the strain and seeing the shit splatter everywhere.

    1. Remind me again exactly why it is that we are allowing their ongoing existence.

      That is the reality, after all. The Muslim world exists because we permit it to. The West exists becauyse the Muslim world can’t destroy it.

    1. #16 & did you hear the clown negus say hammas were “so-called” terrorists? he is scum, scum, scum – but that’s probably insulting to scum

    1. It’s OK. Jimmy Carter and his international monitoring group (that successfully monitored the Venezuelan elections and also found wild support for the Castro regime and proper treatment of political prisoners in Cuba)is overseeing the elections and have already chastised Israel for (1) having impeded the elections (2) refusing to recognize Hamas. Carter is so efficient that he isn’t waiting, like Europe and the US lefties, for the elections to take place before blaming the Jews.

    1. Those Palestinian boys were shooting at posters because they were just, like, you know, bored, because there aren’t any Jews around to shoot because they, like, you know, built that wall, and what are Palestinians supposed to do for entertainment?  Sheesh.

      That’s okay.  I’m offended, but only mildly.

    1. ABC’S Mark Willasee romancing again from Ramullah…“and I’m talking to a member of the Al Aksa brigade(as you would) WITH A PISTOL TUCKED INTO HIS JEANS.”..and “men from Fatah WEARING BLACK AND WHITE SCARVES..”
      “this man was up EARLY to vote for Fatah,his brothers were killed by Israeli soldiers..” and “Hamas in Gaza -gathered to pray to Allah”…well who else would they be praying to ? and “Democracy is a double edged sword”…The abc then came to the sudden realization that “there is sexual violence in PNG…gosh that notion must have struck them fifty years too late,just as with Aboriginal people in Austraya -or have they been protecting the self determination of PNG too? By remaining silent for so long.
      Meantime back on the radio a history teacher who has been teaching for a whole 25 years -(which puts him smack in the post Whitlam era of 1980..) comments on the Prime Minister’s History plans…(well his generation are often HUNG UP on dates..and we teach them but they are not central (to history).I think ” and ” he’s going to be extremely embarrassed when he realises the money he’s spent on the Discovering Democracy programme..
      Other comments “well that’s the Kraft cheese and the slice of white bread history-well you build on the narrative and then you question it-you say WHO are the missing voices and WHERE are they…” Teachers….

    1. crash

      Howard should be taking a lesson from the paternalists who, presuming to represent those ‘missing voices’, told lies, betrayed their discipline, propagandised the young and feathered their own nests on the backs of aborigines.

      There’s politics in history, sure, but history is not just politics.

      The guy sneers at Kraft.  What cheese is he eating on a teacher’s salary?
