Instability is opportunity which leads to historic moments. Hamas has fostered instability in the expectation that the opportunity would arise to impose its minority will upon its rivals. Shades of the Bolsheviks vs. the Mensheviks! Hamas' use of an undeclared hudna (undeclared, as how can you reach hudna with your own people) to arm and to prepare for this week is a clear sign of what to expect in the future. It is a shame that the strongest force left for the creation of a Palestinian state is one which brooks no dissension and, if allowed to continue, will lead to the further oppression of the Palestinian people - by their own people. Woe to women, Christians, Samaritans, musicians, theater owners - oops, ran out of room for the list of future victims of this face of Islam.
