Fatah Squares Off Against Hamas

Good luck finding a good guy in this one. Arafat is so incompetent they are now reduced to fighting amongst themselves ... which in some ways is better than looking for ways to obliterate people of other countries but not really a positive sign for the immediate future.

Yasser Arafat's Fatah group warned the Islamist group Hamas it would react with "an iron fist" to any threats to Palestinian security, following the murder by members of the radical group of a riot police chief. "We strongly warn against this kind of actvity, which goes against the national interest, and Fatah will not allow anyone to lead the Palestinians into an internal fight and divert them from the struggle against Israeli occupation," it added.

According to the police, around 20 armed Hamas members disguised as national security officers on Monday kidnapped the head of the Palestinian riot police at a roadblock in Gaza City and then tortured and killed him.
