Abu Mazen licks his chops

Guess who wants to take charge of Gaza again.
"Yes, we are fully prepared to return to the Gaza Strip," a top PA official told The Jerusalem Post. "We believe the people there are fed up with Hamas and want to see a new government."

Another PA official said Fatah had instructed all its members in the Gaza Strip to be prepared for the possibility of returning to power.

"We have enough men in the Gaza Strip who are ready to fill the vacuum," he said. "But of course all this depends on whether Israel manages to get rid of the Hamas regime."

The two officials voiced hope that the current IDF operation would end Hamas rule in Gaza. They said that the PA was also prepared to dispatch security forces from the West Bank to replace the Hamas militiamen.
Hmm. Then why are the 'Palestinians' in Judea and Samaria - including some senior Fatah people like Mustapha Barghouti - condemning the Israeli operation? Let's go to the videotape.

Whom do you believe? Iran's propaganda arm? Or what a 'Palestinian' reporter writes for the Jerusalem Post? I believe Khaled Abu Toameh and the Post - Fatah doesn't dare to tell Press TV the truth. There is little doubt that Abu Mazen and his friends are licking their chops at the prospect of getting Gaza back. And unfortunately, this Israeli government is likely to oblige them.

By the way, in the video, 'abducted' is what you and I would call 'arrested.'

Fatah has another reason to be afraid of what's going on in Gaza:
Also Saturday, Fatah called on its supporters in the Strip to storm Hamas-controlled prisons to release Fatah detainees. The call came as most of Hamas's security installations were demolished by IAF planes.

Fatah representatives in the West Bank said that Hamas was holding more than 250 Fatah men in its various prisons throughout the Gaza Strip. They expressed fear that Hamas would use the detainees as human shields against the Israeli air strikes.
Why should the 'detainees' be treated any differently than the other civilians in Gaza?

This is my point for a massive air bombardment. I don't want to leave Gaza free for a different breed of terrorists; if it was my place to do so, I would have it totally cleansed. Something that is apparently beyond the comprehension of Israel's government, which forgets what war is all about.
