Call in Dr. Sanity!

It's time to call in Dr. Sanity! It seems that the 'Palestinian Security Forces' are depressed and need some counseling:
Dr. Riad al-Aqra, the director for the Gaza hospital for mental health, said that "although the occupation is a major cause for emotional depression for Gaza residents…Palestinian infighting plays a striking role in the increase of shock, tension and depression, present in previously unseen amounts."
Well, as long as he named the 'occupation' as the first cause for the emotional depression, maybe we'll let Dr. al-Aqra keep his job head after all.
"One member of the Hamas security force came to me suffering from high tension, which was causing physical problems. He said he felt fear from the fact that he would burn in hell forever if he fired even one bullet at someone," the doctor said.

He told of another case, in which a member of the security forces arrived with similar symptoms. "He said he couldn't fire at another Muslim, and that he felt pain and bitterness," al-Aqra said.

"These are the feelings on both sides of the infighting, and emphasize that everyone, deep inside, rejects the civil war in his soul, rejects that which is unnatural," he explained.
Isn't it amazing what these people consider 'normal'? I'm so relieved (not!) that they consider murdering Jews to be 'natural.' I think that Dr. Sanity would argue that this is just a symptom of a much larger problem:
Apparently, the character of today's Islam is such that it encourages the creation and nourishment of monsters:
Pakistan - The boy with the knife looks barely 12. In a high-pitched voice, he denounces the bound, blindfolded man before him as an American spy. Then he hacks off the captive's head to cries of "God is great!" and hoists it in triumph by the hair.

A video circulating in Pakistan records the grisly death of Ghulam Nabi, a Pakistani militant accused of betraying a top Taliban official who was killed in a December airstrike in Afghanistan.

An Associated Press reporter confirmed Nabi's identity by visiting his family in Kili Faqiran, their remote village in southwestern Pakistan.

The video, which was obtained by AP Television News in the border city of Peshawar on Tuesday, appears authentic and is unprecedented in jihadist propaganda because of the youth of the executioner.
Unprecedented, perhaps; but not unexpected.
The other reason that the Hamas security forces are depressed is that they had a fight this week with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is suddenly not extreme enough....
The rift occurred after a senior leader in the organization, Abd al-Munam Abu al-Fatouh, announced that the Brotherhood supports the creation of a secular Palestinian state and a bi-national presence in Palestinian, as a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Hamas members were so incensed by al-Fatouh's announcement that the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Muhammad Mahdi Akef, had to release a special statement refuting it.

Akef said, in his statement, that the Muslim Brotherhood believes that "Palestine is Islamic and therefore, holy to Muslims and, thus, belongs only to Palestinians."

"No Palestinian has the right to refute this…The Zionists have no choice but to live under the rule of a Palestinian nation in which they will be free to worship their God and enjoy full rights of citizenship," Akef added.

"If the Zionists do not agree, our Palestinian brothers will have no choice but to resist and undertake all actions that are consistent with holy principles that were given to the Palestinians and that are in accordance with their national interests," he said.

Nonetheless, a source from the Muslim Brotherhood told the London-Based a-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper that Akef's statement was made primarily to reduce tension between the two groups.
But don't cry too much for the 'Palestinian Security Forces' in the Gaza Strip. Saturday night, they shot four more Kassam rockets into Sderot. One of the groups taking respsonsibility credit is 'moderate' 'Palestinian President' Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen's Fatah:
In a joint statement, the Islamic Jihad, the Hamas-controlled Popular Resistance Committees and the Fatah's Al-Aksa Martyrs Brigades claimed responsibility for the Saturday rocket attacks. They declared that the barrage was retaliation for an Israeli counter-terrorism operation in Jenin earlier Saturday, in which three PA terrorists were killed.
But give them a state reichlet and all of the world's problems will be solved .
