'Palestinian' civil war watch: PA Minister for Religious Endowment accuses Hamas of stealing money and causing Gaza electric crisis

In what may be the beginnings of a 'Palestinian' civil war, PA Minister for Religious Endowment Mahmoud Habbash accuses the "criminal" Hamas of stealing money from the 'people' and causing the electricity crisis in Gaza. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Let's go to the videotape. More after the video.

No nasty comments about how that sounds like Israel's electric company, even though it does (Israel's electric company also provides free electricity to all its employees, who are among the most highly paid in the country)....

Hamas is angry at the 'Palestinian Authority' too. The 'Palestinian Authority' allowed the Ramallah Contemporary Dance Festival to open on Thursday despite the existence of a 'hunger strike' among 'Palestinian prisoners.'
The annual festival, which was launched last Thursday in Ramallah, has drawn thousands of Palestinians in the West Bank, is supported by the PA Ministry of Culture, the Ramallah Municipality, the Swiss Organization for Cooperation and Development and the Goethe Institute.

The festival hosts 15 local and international dance companies that will perform in Ramallah, Bethlehem, Nablus and Hebron.

The festival also includes dance workshops and film and documentary screenings about the German choreographer Pina Bausch, who played a major role in the development of modern dance in Germany.

The opening performance was given by the British troupe Ballet Boyz.

Noting that the dance festival coincided with the beginning of a hunger strike by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails, Hamas leaders accused the PA of showing disrespect for the feelings of Palestinians.

"Holding dance festivals in Ramallah at the same time that our prisoners are on hunger strike violates the traditions and culture of our Palestinian people," said Hamas leader Ezat Risheq. "This is an insult to the suffering of our prisoners."
It doesn't sound like the 'Palestinians' were very 'insulted' if the festival drew thousands of them, does it? Heh.
