Day 9 of “Operation Cast Lead”
Unless you are living under a rock of very large size you know that yesterday evening the IDF ground pounders went in to hit Hamas face to face. This means Infantry, Combat Engnr.s; etc the local news has been on all night and every mother who has a kid in the army didn’t sleep a wink. It started with the Artillery Corps. Doing their thing. Firing pin point and raising hell like only a true “Red Leg” can. (Ok I’m biased because I was Artty).
What you don’t hear on the news is something that I’ve been harping on over and over through the years and some folks say I’m just full of shit but today it’s in print and it is out there for all to see, Palestinian on Palestinian violence! Violence so great that it makes even my thick skin crawl and makes us wonder who are these f’n animals?
Hamas moves on Fatah ‘collaborators’
Jan. 4, 2009
Khaled Abu Toameh , THE JERUSALEM POST
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.
Fatah officials in Ramallah told The Jerusalem Post that Hamas militiamen had been assaulting many Fatah activists since the beginning of the operation last Saturday. They said at least 75 activists were shot in the legs while others had their hands broken.
OK now they are “kneecapping” folks! Acting like the old IRA and making the Mafia look like a bunch of pussy cats.
Wisam Abu Jalhoum, a Fatah activist from the Jabalya refugee camp, was shot in the legs by Hamas militiamen for allegedly expressing joy over the IDF air strikes on Hamas targets.
“Hamas is very nervous, because they feel that their end is nearing,” a senior Fatah official said. “They have been waging a brutal campaign against Fatah members in the Gaza Strip.”
Things are getting worse, and you will see so in the following.
Meanwhile, sources close to Hamas revealed over the weekend that the movement had “executed” more than 35 Palestinians who were suspected of collaborating with Israel and were being held in various Hamas security installations.
The sources quoted Hamas officials as saying that the decision to kill the suspected collaborators was taken out of fear that Israel might try to rescue them during a ground offensive. The officials claimed that at least half of the victims were killed by relatives of Palestinian militiamen who were killed as a result of information passed on to Israel by the “collaborators.”
Now it’s looking like the last days of the “Third Reich” when they started hanging folks on the street just because they knew it was over.
I wonder how fat ass Rosanne Barr would react to this type of violence on the side of her heroes and possibly her last fans?
This isn’t the first time this type of violence has happened in the areas but it is a landmark as it isn’t directed at the Christian Arabs, like it has been over the years. Hell even on Christmas day when the local Christians were allowed to live the strip to celebrate the holyday the Hamas lobbed a mortar shell into the building where they sat waiting for clearance from the IDF to enter Israel. Lucky for them a sort of Christmas miracle happened and the shell was a dud as if it had gone off there would have been close to 300 less Christians for them to torture after the holyday.
I wonder why the world press forgets to mention this kind of stuff. I wonder why when we blow up a mosque they forget to mention that the Mosque was housing weapons. How come the people who protest against Israel’s defensive actions on the streets of every country in the world weren’t out there protesting the 8 long years that the people living in southern Israel were being shelled each and every day? Where were the burning flags of Hamas and Palestine? Where were the outrage and hate?
This too makes me wonder. This too makes me want to puke!
