Hamas: Fatah has declared war on Allah

posted at 11:54 am on December 15, 2006 by Allahpundit

And you know what happens to people who do that.

Chairman of the Hamas faction in parliament Khalil al-Haya, told a crowd of tens of thousands at a Hamas rally in Gaza Friday that “(Palestinian President Mahmoud) Abbas has declared war on Allah and on the will of the Palestinian people.”…

Al-Haya … referred to Abbas’ anticipated speech Saturday: “We will fight with force for the voter’s choice against those who want to bring about a coup.”

Abbas’ speech has caused much turmoil in the PA, as the president is expected to announce the dismissal of the government, and holding a referendum or early elections.

It’s not just the speech. Pali PM Ismail Haniyeh nearly got whacked while crossing over from Egypt into Gaza last night after his Hamas guards exchanged fire with the Fatah border patrol. Israel had refused to readmit him because he was carrying more than $30 million in cash; his coterie got impatient and stormed the checkpoint, leading to a “ferocious battle” with the Fatah guard. Eventually he was allowed to pass and as his convoy sped away, the Fatah contingent raked it with gunfire. One of his bodyguards was killed and his son was wounded. Hamas claimed later that Mohammed Dahlan, a top Pali official who was present at the crossing, had planned the hit and promised to “even the score.” For the time being, though, they want Abbas to pull Fatah’s border guards out of the checkpoint, which would make it easier to smuggle money into Gaza.

As for the $30 mil, it was left in Egypt. But its significance won’t be lost on the Saudis, who are surely factoring Iran’s growing influence in Gaza into their assessments about the Shiite threat from Iraq.

The most important point about Haniyeh’s fund-raising trip abroad was that he made it clear to the Palestinians and the international community that Hamas is allying itself with the Damascus/Tehran axis and against pro-Western regional players such as Egypt and Saudi Arabia, said Dr. Reuven Erlich, director of the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center near Tel Aviv…

“Iran is becoming a strategic threat and Hamas and Hizballah are tools in the hands of Iran,” said Ehrlich. “Hamas is becoming a regional threat by joining the Syria-Iranian axis.”

Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal is based in Damascus.

Meanwhile, 32 people were wounded today in gunfights in Gaza City and Ramallah; a senior Pali intel officer was kidnapped by the jihadi Popular Resistance Front; and Hamas gunmen have barricaded themselves inside a mosque and are shooting at Pali security forces. Statehood beckons!

Now is we can only get an imaginary police officer to report that non-existant people were burned to death during the destruction of undamaged mosques, the MSM could declare it a civil war in Palestine.

BohicaTwentyTwo on December 15, 2006 at 12:11 PM

The idea of terrorists fighting other terrorists is too good to be true. There has got to be a catch to this somewhere.

Hilts on December 15, 2006 at 12:11 PM

It’s all Israel’s fault. Just further evidence of the Zionist plot talked about by our dear leader President Tom Ahmadinnerjacket. Now is the time for Sen Cash-N-Karry to interject himself into the dispute and take Jahmmy Cahrter along to restore peace and continue down the road to peace.

Waiting for Jimmy Carter’s explanation of Pali-on-Pali violence…(hint: the Jooooooos).

We should instigate this fight… Like a guy in the corner shouting “They said your only mother prays twice a day and your fathers are camel salesman from Jalalabad”

maybe they kill each other the Jews can kinda kick back and relax, like a mini vacation

You know that Brian Williams is sitting somewhere thinking to himself;

“I wonder if the American people are dumb enough to believe that this is in Iraq”.

Civil war in the Middle East. What a strange concept. (is a sarcasm tag really necessary here?) Well, I’ve got popcorn, so time to lounge back in the recliner and watch the fun.

Civil war in the Middle East

It is not a civil war because NBC hasn’t ‘called it’ yet.

Oops, my bad.

Wrong! It’s all Israel AND Bush’s fault.

Mig on December 15, 2006 at 12:34 PM

Yep – that’s exactly what a liberal I work with told me the other day. He stated that Bush is the cause of all of it (including Iran’s Holocaust denial summit). Hmmm, if only the Supreme Court would have upheld the Florida Supreme Court – Gore would be president, and none of this would have happened (including 9/11, Katrina, etc.) Peace, love and happiness for all.

Heh.

Jaibones on December 15, 2006 at 1:00 PM

Blame Bush and the Israelis?
It’s a conservative-zionist conspiracy! Woo-hoo!

NBC won’t declare it a Civil War – it’s only a political reset of the Palestinian Authority by democratic means. Just a minor disagreement of political philosophies.

Hey – what _is_ the body count for ‘Pali-on-Pali’ violence? Anyone keeping track? Anyone? Bueler? Ah – I forgot that this doesn’t fit the norms for liberal statisical bookkeeping.

Timothy S. Carlson on December 15, 2006 at 1:01 PM

I’m really having trouble keeping all the ‘players’ straight.

The ‘west side gang’, who own the south side of Chicago, has gone to war against the ‘irish mob’, who own Boston, but are trying to expand in Kansas City. Meanwhile Al Capone is sending Frank Nitty to NYC. Al Capone ‘owns’ Chicago, even though he lives in Miami, and is insane, due to advance syphlis.

Meanwhile MS13, an agent of a foreign government is trying to make a name for itself in Los Angles by terrifying refugees fleeing war in Honduras.

Somehow, I don’t think I have this correct.

rockhauler on December 15, 2006 at 1:09 PM

You know…….. all the Drama is wearing quite thin. It’s like hanging out at a strip club for too long, it’s just not interesting anymore. Go ahead, kill each other, I have some Christmas shopping to do……….

PinkyBigglesworth on December 15, 2006 at 1:13 PM

I think this calls for some dialogue.

JammieWearingFool on December 15, 2006 at 1:41 PM

This can’t be!?! What’ll happen to the “peace process”!?!

CP on December 15, 2006 at 1:44 PM

Kerry really needs to go to Iran right now.

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on December 15, 2006 at 1:49 PM

What’ll happen to the “peace process”!?!

It got replaced by the “piece process”.

E L Frederick (Sniper One) on December 15, 2006 at 1:50 PM

Some here have figured it out, it’s not a civil war until MSNBC declares it so. Where is Keith Olberman? We need a blue ribbon panel to get Hamas and Fattah out of this mess. We need consensus in the territories. Abu Baker and Ali Hamilton have time now. Perhaps Iran and Syria can help the situation, after all, Chuck Hagel, it’s in their best interest to have stability in the region…….

ritethinker on December 15, 2006 at 1:52 PM

What a bunch of animal husbandry addicts. All you magnificent bastards have to do is to stop killing each other long enough for their to be an internationally recognized state setup.

I’m sure all of you “white trash” Palestinians are so much better off killing each other than you would be under a state.

E L Frederick (Sniper One) on December 15, 2006 at 1:55 PM

Ah, the glories of an Islamic state. So much for the peace amongst Muslims myth.

Whose side is Allah really on?

ROFL.

Allah’s on Israel’s side

Why don’t we just ask him. Hey Allah, who’s side are you on anyway? You can’t just post this stuff and pretend to be objective.

Time to go long on popcorn futures…

LOL!! Indeed.

x95b10 on December 15, 2006 at 4:01 PM

we should give hand held nukes to each side and let them blow the F##k out of each other…

we should have done this 26 years ago.. it would have saved the world from 26 more years of the worst scum on earth..

I imagine these are teenagers, teenagers, and teenagers, respectively.

Kralizec on December 15, 2006 at 8:28 PM

Hey, maybe they could put it on pay per view, live, and all the proceeds can go to the Gold Star Kids’ college fund.

Hamas vs Fatah – LLLLLLLLET’S GET READY TO RUMBLLLLLLE!

By the way, I’m in Las Vegas (VEGAS baby!) and we saw Marines unloading trucks full of ‘Toys for Tots’. God bless those Devil Dogs!

Tony737 on December 16, 2006 at 8:19 AM

X95 –

“You shoot like a goat herder!” “You are a man who enjoys to be sodomized!” (U.S. Troops actually used these in Fallujah, apparently shooting like a goat herder is a HUGE insult!)

“Your sister shows her ankles!”

“Your father doesn’t take off his sandles before entering the mosque!”

“I blow my nose in your general direction!” (Works on Frenchies, makes ‘em surrender)

“I show you the bottom of my sandles!”

“Your daughter wears a turtle neck sweater!”

Things that would make us think the person saying it is totally retarded makes them go friggin’ nuts. Hhhmmmm ….. supports my theory that THEY are totally retarded.

(Disclaimer: No insult directed at those with D.S., I think they are highly developed spirits who were sent to us by God for reasons beyond our mortal understanding).

Tony737 on December 16, 2006 at 9:01 AM

Hilts, no, it’s true! Terrorists have been killing terrorists since the big split in islam brought about shiaism (is that a word?) 700 years ago. Correct me if I’m wrong somebody, was it in the 1,300′s?

Let ‘em kill each other off! I just read “We Were One” (battle of Fallujah) and the jihadis were gettin’ so coked up that our guys had to shoot ‘em several times before they’d die, just like Tony Montana. I hope Hamas and Fatah don’t get these drugs, I want them to kill each other as easily as possible. For every dead terrorist, there’s one American school girl who lives in peace.

Tony737 on December 16, 2006 at 9:14 AM

And just what would the Palestinians do with the Jewish property if they had it?? We have seen it already in Gaza.
No exports from them and no ability to feed themselves.
