Colour scheming

It came to my attention through Rafahpundits that there is some confusion about the orange flags being waved in the picture I posted of the Gaza "liberation festival". Those are actually the new (formerly black and white) flags of Fateh's al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. They were redesigned apparently so they wouldn’t be confused with the black (and gold) of the Islamic Jihad flag. Even worse, now they are confused with the orange of Israeli anti-disengagement movement!

As Rafahpundit commented:
Just to be clear then, the residents of Gaza are going to celebrate disengagement dressed in the colours of the Israeli national flag, waving flags in the colur of the ANTI disengagement protestors. It is ironic right?! No wonder we call it Disneygagement™

I couldn't have said it better myself.

It is amazing how a group of diferent people though the same thing.
We all got struck by the fact that diferent groups (The settlers, Al Aqsa, ) have in common their colours.

The groups that are most similar fight the most probably because they fear loss of distinction. Just look at the Irish, Yugoslavians, and the Israelis and Palestinians.
