Hamas At War With Fellow Palestinians

Even as Israeli troops move into Gaza, a quiter civil war is taking place virtually behind the scenes. The islamo-fascists in control, Hamas, are moving to crush the more moderate Fatah. The Palestinian people are vicitms of Hamas, the radicals within. The Washington Post explains that "Israel's assault on the Gaza Strip has exacerbated the deep divisions between Palestinians who want to make peace with Israel and those who support Hamas' militant struggle against the Jewish state." (More via the Pittsburgh Post Gazette...) The Jerusalem Post has a similar report: The Hamas government has placed dozens of Fatah members under house arrest out of fear that they might exploit the current IDF operation to regain control of the Gaza Strip. The move came amid reports that the Fatah leadership in the West Bank has instructed its followers to be ready to assume power over the Gaza Strip when and if Israel's military operation results in the removal of Hamas rule.
