I’m not sure what people expected when they decided to have a rally at the grave of a terrorist, but terror is in fact what ensued.
At least six people were killed today after Hamas security forces opened fire on Palestinians commemorating the death of Yasser Arafat.
The latest violence occurred as an estimated 250,000 people turned out in Gaza City carrying pictures of the late Palestinian leader, yellow Fatah flags and wearing trademark black and white Arab headdresses.
It was the largest public display of support for Fatah since it was forced out of power in Gaza by Hamas Islamists in June.
Hm. How could something like this possibly happen when one terrorist group protests another terrorist group at the grave of the world’s original arch terrorist? It’s just the shockingest thing ever.
