Second judge in one week murdered

For the second time in one week, a judge was murdered today in broad daylight by unknown assailants in the southern Gaza Strip town of Khan Yunis. Bassem el-Farra, who happens to be a relative of ours on my mother's side of the family, was on his way to the Shari'a Court where he works when four gunmen sprayed him with bullets, only two days after the gruesome killing of the three children of a senior Fateh intelligence chief.

Hamas has accused the so-called "death squads" of Fateh for the attack again el-Farra, who is also a senior leader within Hamas's Izz-e-din il-Qassam Brigades.

Fateh supporters have blamed Hamas for the surge in lawlessness in recent days, an accusation which Hamas flatly rejects.

"It's strange that the situation intensified after Fatah announced that unity government talks are at a stand- still," said Palestinian Interior Minister Said Siyam to Palestinian papers.

According to Siyam, internal security is the responsibility of not only the interior minister and the government, but of Abbas as well, who is considered the commander-in-chief of the Palestinian security forces.

"The recent kidnapping of journalists and many of the recent violent incidents were actually carried out by Fatah. We (Hamas) on the other hand, fired operatives who were involved in aberrant incidents," Siyam explained.

"Our requests to the Fatah-affiliated security forces to detain the operatives responsible for the kidnapping were rejected, and Fatah continues to support them," he added.

Three days ago, another judge, Jamal Abu Salim, was killed in the same area.

Amidst the chaos, both sides have noted the absence and silence of Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, demanding he make his voice heard and come to Gaza to quell rising fears of civil unrest.

Please be careful, Um Yousuf.

The news from the border is frightening.

The Israelis and the Americans just may get the Palestinian civil war they have been hoping for.

All this killing of innocent children and people is what Hamas and Fateh brought to us! we are sick of those people!...

I Hate:

Ismayel Haneya (who the hell says this man is pragmatic?)

Mohammod Abbas (inadequate leader and very weak man).

Sayeed Syam (who the hell said this man can be adequate for leadership! he was my teacher in the 6th grade and all the students will scream and talk in his class and he was not able to control them! )

Mohammed Dahalan (I wish we'll get rid of him pretty soon)

Sameer Masharawai (idiot and full of deception)

Khaled Meshaal (playing with the fate of the Palestinians while enjoying luxurious life in Damascus! his speeches are full of sedition)

zionist tactic to divid and conquer

first slander islam to the christians, get the christians to support ethnic cleansing and slow genocided in palestine
then get the christians to fight the muslims in iraq

get the muslims in iraq and lebannon to fight other muslims according to sect

buy off fatah in palestine to fight hamas (legally elected) government, back fatah to the hilt and make a few hits on children and government officials

it is the zionist way

brothers and sisters love eachother and fight the zionist

Speech of Jewish Rabbi in Teheran:

"My friends I wish to end with the prayer that the underlying cause of strife and bloodshed in the Middle East, namely, the State known as 'Israel', be totally and peacefully dissolved. To be replaced by a regime fully in accordance with the aspirations of the Palestinians. When Arab and Jew will be able to live peacefully together as they did for centuries."

I think it's high time we had a civil war in Gaza. History has proven that at times this is needed to bring about a better future. Fatah are arrogant and believe they are Palestine. Palestine, or the Holy Land, was here before Fatah! It's time we cleaned the mess in Gaza and it's Fitnah, aka Fatah!!

No, anonymous. There are indeed Palestinians who hate that 4 musketeers. There are still wise people among the Palestinians who will not follow Hamas in its antisemitic choir. Freedom and peace for both peoples!
