    In the last incursion it was said that Fatah wanted the Israelis to put an end to the threat of Hamas TO THEIR POWER BASE. That didn't happen. For some reason it sounds strange for one faction of the Palestinian National movement to ask the Jewish State to eliminate thier oppositon, no? That means we have to be the aggressor, and the world can point us as violating whatever, insead of, say, as we are accusing Assad of . . . in Syria. This time round we hear via Barak Ravid, that the intention of Hamas was to discredit Fatah in thier efforts to upgrade their status in the UN by staging an aggresive act on Israel. What else could we do? It's obvious when you make war there is collatoral damage, and civilians often get caught in the crossfire, or, are used as decoys for soldiers. So it would seem, again, we are the bad boys in a struggle between Hamas and Fatah for the control of the Palestinian National movement--do you understand that?! Arie and Michael, pretend that we are in a gang war in Chicago and we are the third party that gets the bad press for trying to defend our turf from that bigger gang whose leadership is fighting among themselves, and would rather see the "neighbors" get the rap for being violent.
