Saturday Night at the Movies, 'Palestinian' style

I don't know how it is in the US today (even when I get there, I have neither the time nor the inclination to sit in front of a TV), but when I was a kid, most nights, one or more networks had a two-hour show from 9:00-11:00 (on the east coast) called "xxx Night at the Movies." Saturday night was always the best one.

As with many other things, the 'Palestinians' have their own style for Saturday Night at the Movies. Here's what went on last night in Gaza:
The Palestinian Authority said that a new group, which is most likely inspired by al-Qaeda, has begun acting out against 'secular' targets that supposedly offend Islam.

Anonymous persons ignited a CD shop in Khan Younis Saturday night, causing tens of thousands of dollar worth of damage.

Activists of the group, called "The Sword of Islam" went to the trouble of warning the store's owner Nidal Abdin before blowing up his shop.

The activists told him that they intended to blow the store up if he continued to sell CD's and cosmetics that "offend morals and the Muslim religion."

The PA believes that this act is also the doing of the new group that has begun activity in the past few months on the Gaza Strip.
And they expect it to get 'worse':
The Sword of Islam organization published a few announcements in which it declared that its men will continue to harm anyone who causes damage to the Islamic identity and the Islamic tradition of the residents of the Strip. So far, the organization is holding up to its threats.

Sources in the Palestinian Authority fear that these attacks on businesses on religious background will only worsen, following the deteriorating political and security anarchy on the Strip, and the void created by security forces, since part of them are now on strike.
But give them a state reichlet and all of the world's problems will be solved.

Sometimes you can see slight similiarities between the cousins Yishmeal (may their name be erased) and Yisroel (may their name be blessed), in the attitude of "My way or the highway"...
