Riots in Gaza as Fatah laments 'The Big Punishment'
The Jerusalem Post takes a look at the current mindset among the stunned Fatah leaders in an article titled "Fatah leaders reeling from 'the big punishment'". The leaders should not be stunned.
There are news reports currently on the cable networks of riots in Gaza, including angry mobs outside Mahmoud Abbas' (Abu Mazen) home demanding that he resign. The crowd has now dispersed from around Abbas' home and seem to be making their way towards the Palestinian Leadership Council headquarters, where cars are already burning in the streets.
There have also been reports of armed clashes already between Fatah and Hamas.
If Fatah leaders think the election results amounts to 'The Big Punishment', they have short-ranged vision. The Big Punishment will come in the form of reaction to a PA led by a terrorist organization like Hamas. They have yet to feel the punishment that awaits the first Hamas-sponsored act of terrorism.
