"Now these same guys want to liberate Gaza from Hamasd while having a good drink in the company of women at the Grand Park Hotel." - El-Birawi It is hard to figure who screwed themselves worse, Bush and Olmert by putting all their eggs in a basket called "Fatah Coup", or Abbas which sold himself to a pair of guys that had no intention of helping him. The basic reason that Hamas had beaten Fatah in the elections was that Fatah had become a corrupt affiliation of war lords and political fiefdoms. The total failure of the Fatah coup against the Hamas government in Gaza was pretty predictable. Fatah has no discipline, no organization, no leadership, and no goal besides stealing as much as it can before any money gets spent on the Palestinian people. That the Coup halted short of wiping out Hamas in the West Bank should be noted. There is a very simple reason for this. Fatah had somewhere to run when it lost in Gaza. Where can they run from the West Bank? The situation is grim.
