The 'Palestinian' Mafia

A 'Palestinian businessman' who supports Hamas was kidnapped this morning in Bethlehem and shot in the legs four times. According to the Jerusalem Post, the businessman was suspected of trying to establish a pro-Hamas security force in the city.

The attack on Ahmed Habib, 35, triggered protests in Bethlehem, with some residents staging a sit-down strike in Manger Square to demand an end to lawlessness and anarchy. Where were these people when the Church of the Nativity was taken over by terrorists a couple of years ago?

Habib was abducted by four masked gunmen terrorists from his business in the Doha neighborhood west of Bethlehem. The kidnappers blindfolded him and took him to the nearby town of Bet Sahour, where they shot him four times in both legs.

According to the Post, most locals assume that 'moderate Palestinian President' Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen's Fatah was behind the attack, but Habib was not sure:

"I can't determine who is behind the attack, especially since Fatah leaders and members of the Aksa Martyrs Brigades came to visit me in hospital and strongly condemned the attack. They also denied any connection." Describing his kidnappers as a "fifth column," Habib said their main goal was to trigger internecine fighting in the Bethlehem area.

Hassan Abdel Jawad, a senior member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, said the attack was extremely dangerous, because it was one of a series of assaults on top officials in Bethlehem over the past three months. There have also been several assaults on Hamas 'legislators' in the Hebron area. Abdel Jawad also pointed out that Tuesday's shooting came only days after Fatah gunmen and security officers opened fire at the home of Tourism Minister Judeh Murqus, forcing him to resign from the Hamas cabinet.

What a civilized people! Let's give them a state reichlet!
