Terrorist infighting

Come on, people! Every family has a little bit of infighting once in a while, right? Why just Islamofascists be any different? Headline: "Palestinian group threatens to kill Hamas leaders."
Fatah gunmen threatened on Tuesday to kill leaders of the governing Hamas group, escalating a power struggle marked by the worst internal violence in Gaza and the West Bank since the Palestinian Authority was created in 1994.

On a visit to the Middle East, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice urged an end to the bloodshed that has coincided with calls by Washington's Arab allies to restart Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking.

Twelve Palestinians have been killed and more than 100 wounded in two days of clashes in the Gaza Strip and the occupied West Bank between the Fatah faction of President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas.

Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, an armed wing of Fatah, said it held Hamas's Damascus-based political chief Khaled Meshaal, Interior Minister Saeed Seyam and senior Interior Ministry official Youssef al-Zahar responsible for the deaths.

"We in al-Aqsa announce, with all might and frankness, the ruling of the people in the homeland and in the diaspora, to execute the head of the sedition, Khaled Meshaal, Saeed Seyam and Youssef al-Zahar, and we will execute this ruling so those filthy people can be made an example," a statement said.
Hamas legislator Mushir al-Masri, responding to al-Aqsa's first death threat against the group's leaders, said the Fatah gunmen were "pouring oil on the fire" between the rival movements.

Masri said Hamas would "not show mercy" if any of its top officials were targeted by what he called "the leaders of the internal coup."
Fatah wants to kill Hamas, and Hamas wants to kill Fatah. Hey, I hope they BOTH achieve their goals!
