According to the AP several Fatah leaders have attempted to flee to Israel. The continuing carnage in Gaza is the direct fault of Fatah itself. Fatah should have acted years ago, but failed to deal with the problem.
The similarity between the goons of Hamas and communists are disturbing. Classic Communists notably Trotskyite clowns advance endless revolution and class genocide. The clowns of Hamas are practicing classic class genocide. If they ditched the Koran
their behavior would be indistinguishable from classic Communists. Maybe we should send American Communists over to Gaza to explain how to build Gulags or better yet laogai. If the people at Hamas behead a few this would be no great loss as Commies never use their heads in the first place. All Commies ever do is follow the party line no matter how divorced from reality it is and repeat slogans.
The usual suspects blame Israel for the carnage but the fault lies with the far left notably Commies. Commies have allowed the Arabs to blame all social maladies on Israel without ever demanding basics. There was no demand that Arabs build an economy and prosecute those who violate laws. There has been no demand for accountabilty that the aid reaches the intended recipients.
Hamas's actions are barbaric even by decidely low terrorist standards. There is an obvious solution, let Egypt take control of the area. The residents of Gaza were Egyptian until the far left created a myth of Palestinianism after the Six Day War.
This action would mean an end to the myth created by the left. This only proves once again that the left doesn't really care about Arabs it pretends to obsess over. They prefer to perpetuate the myth of Palestinianism as a weapon against the Joooos even if all of the people it venerates die.
There are critics of the Gaza withdrawl who did not understand that Sharon had given the Arabs a challenge. Build your economy, create jobs and deliver services was the basic task handed to the local Arabs. However, it has now become apparent that Gaza is mess. Egypt should allow refugees fleeing assasination to leave and then invade.
There will be plenty of time to rebuild and the existing Aid to Egypt should cover rebuilding.
Do not expect common sense to prevail. The Communist far left has obsessed about Zionism even before Israel was created. Zionism was a Jewish alternative to Communism and as such subject to vilification even before Israel was created. The charge of Zionism was also a convenient way for Commies to purge Jews in their ranks.
Classic communism also exists only with a dehumanized enemy. Much of the vitriol stems from decades of Communists dehumanizing Zionists. The notion of Communists dehumanizing anyone given their own record is a cruel joke.
I had also predicted this Civil War in Gaza around two years ago.
