I've Been Thinking:
On Wednesday the Palestinian Presidential Compound in Ramallah was attacked by Palestinians. They shot it up.
About 16 al Aksa Brigade members attacked the office of President Abbas.
They were making a point. It was an act of intimidation.
They wanted their old positions back and better conditions.
They thought themselves stronger than the president and his current security team.
A Palestinian roadblock was burned after Palestinian police stopped three Palestinian car thieves.
There was a shootout and a large mob began to attack the police.
The police ran.
The mob burned down the roadblock, burned tents that were set-up there.
The mob burned Palestinian flags.
Abbas ordered the arrest of the gunmen.
But he had already ordered that they be disarmed.
Now Abbas has to make a decision.
Either he acts against this hooliganism or he is consumed by it. Those same people who perpetrated terror against Israelis are now terrorizing him and his people.
It seems like the Wild West, mid-East style, to me.
