Israel Is
If They Do,
And Damned
If They Don't

There is a civil war going on in Gaza. Hamas is rounding up and killing the Fatah "Security Forces."

You just know people will figure out a way to blame the Jews for it. Only, how? How could they possibly blame the Jews for the fact that two Palestinian factions are at war with each other?

Well, watch and learn from this twisted pretzel logic, via the Boston Globe:

The Hamas campaign to eradicate Fatah from Gaza is certainly not the sole cause of Gazans’ misery. They long suffered from Israel’s suffocating occupation, and then from Ariel Sharon’s foolishly unilateral withdrawal in 2005, a move that allowed Hamas to bid for power with the misleading claim that its rockets and suicide bombings had driven Israeli soldiers and settlers out of Gaza. Gazans were victimized as well by the corruption and misrule of Yasser Arafat’s Fatah cronies.

Got that? It's the Jews fault, because of the occupation, AND it is the Jews fault that they stopped occupying Gaza.

So, what words should reasonable people choose to describe our feelings about such reasoning? Well how about this:

Fuck the Boston Globe.

Here's video from the Gaza Civil War.

From Infidels Are Cool:

The bitterness of the civil war that has forced the United Nations relief agency to suspend all but emergency deliveries of food and medical supplies is clear in the epithets the two sides use for each other. Hamas calls the Fatah fighters “the Jew-American army” while Fatah, alluding to Iran’s backing for Hamas, calls the Sunni Muslims of Hamas “the Shi’ites.”
