    or is he? (still smarting from "simpleton + a working girl hypocrite*) But back to gaza bar and grill: here os the comparison i was making: clans in gaza play a role similar to gangs in prison. As closure gets tighter, humans - being suckers for any semblence of law and order - turn to the strongest and most ruthless. This IS what happens inside a prison - gangs rule because it's a society outside the normal recourse and redress offered by - say, a court system, or a community. That gangs inside prisons can form spontaneously is one difference - but that's only because there is no real family life inside prison. If there was, clans would rule in prisons too - fighting it out with the gangs. In this sense, the political dynamics of clans is most similar to that of the mafia, complete with 'gofathers' and hit men. What IS interesting is the rise of an outfit like hamas, which perhaps resembles more a gang culture than a clan. The two duke it out for lack of an outlet. * what's that?
