Abu Mazen's goons go after Barghouti's family

A new front coming in the 'Palestinian' civil war?

Maan News is reporting that 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen's 'Presidential guard' assaulted members of the family of Marwan the Murdering Moron Barghouti last night in Ramallah. Note that Barghouti is a member of Fatah, not Hamas. Is Abu Mazen trying to get rid of his political rivals?
Ruba Barghouthi, Mr. Barghouthi's daughter, was returning home from university Monday evening when, Al-Hayat al-Jadida reported, the presidential guards stopped her. The officers searched Ms. Barghouthi's car, looking through her cassette tapes, despite her protests and those of her mother, who she called from a mobile phone. The guards then asked Ms. Barghouthi to accompany them to the Mukataa, Mahmoud Abbas' presidential compound, the newspaper said.

The report said Ms. Barghouthi refused to move from the roadside. Ms. Barghouthi's brother Qassam Barghouthi, her uncle, and another male relative arrived on the scene. When they arrived the guards assaulted Qassam Barghouthi and aimed their weapons at the heads of the other two men.

More presidential guards then arrived, Al-Hayat al-Jadida reported. Dozens of the guards were said to beat and abuse Qassam Barghouthi. The presidential guards also assaulted passers by who attempted to intervene and protect Mr. Barghouthi.

Dozens of young Palestinian men gathered in the area, calling on the Palestinian Authority to take action against the attackers.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida said that Husseini, the head of the Presidential Court, visited the Barghouthi family in order to assure them that a full investigation will be made into the attack.
I don't think there's any such thing as an 'illegal search and seizure' in 'Palestine.'
