Fatah calls for revolution in Gaza

Shavua tov v'Chodesh tov - a good week and a good month to everyone.

Our rabbis tell us MiShenichnas Adar Marbim b'Simcha - when the month of Adar starts, we increase joy. God willing, let this Adar, which began on Friday night (the first of two this year) be a month of joy for all of us.

The 'Palestinian Authority' has decided that Adar is the time to reunite its divided fiefdom. The 'Palestinian Authority' has called on Gazans to revolt against Hamas - following the example of Egypt and Tunisia - next Friday, February 11 (Hat Tip: IMRA).
Major General Tawfiq At-Tirawi, former director of the PA general intelligence and Fatah Central Committee member called Wednesday in a statement for the people of Gaza to rise up in revolt against the Hamas government.

The people of Gaza, he said, should take their cue from Egypt and call for the end of the "dictatorship that restricts their freedoms."

At-Tirawi's statement is widely believed to be a response to the new group on the social networking site Facebook, Preparation for the Dignity Revolution, which calls for a mass rally in Gaza City on 11 February.

The group, created on 28 January, has 8,316 supporters, many from the West Bank. In its mission statement, unidentified organizers say they are not affiliated with any political party, but accuse Hamas of "implementing a Zionist-Iranian plan."

Its statement lays out five points:
1. This page is not affiliated to any party or religion but it is working for Palestinians
2. Friday 11 February will be the day the Palestinian people say no to division and yes to national unity, they will stand in the face of the challenges facing the Palestinian cause
3. We call on Hamas to stop its coup and go back seriously and immediately to reconciliation to unite again with our people
4. Overthrow the unjust government in Gaza by coordination with the rest of the national parties in the Palestinian arena
5. Initiate an intifada against the current situation in Gaza. A peaceful intifada to say yes to unity and enough to the emirate of darkness.
For his part, the former intelligence official in Ramallah said "I will always call for freedom and liberty, and I appreciate the youth who use internet and Facebook to interact for a better life."
Faster, faster.

"Zionist-Iranian plan"--the imbecility of this must be self-evident even to Fatah flaks, but jaws must open and drivel must eject.

Meanwhile, rumors are abuzzing that Mubarak is stepping down on the way to bye-bye

I didn't know Ahmedinejad was really a secret Zionist! Heh.

But it does show Arab paranoia about Israel knows no bounds.

The truth is I have no favorite in this feud. Between Fatah and Hamas, I wish it would go on forever and may both sides lose!

Faster, faster, faster now!
