I've Been Thinking:
Tensions are extremely high in Gaza right now.
The tensions can be attributed to any number of reasons, but when push comes to shove, it is all about politics.
The Palestinian Authority has scheduled a presidential election for January 9th.
That's when Hamas intends to oust Abbas. To that end, a serious smear campaign has already begun in Gaza to delegitimize Abbas and Fatah.
The situation is crude and out of control.
Hamas has issued edicts aimed at sucking the emotional strength out of Fatah supporters.
According to a report in the Palestinian press that was made public by the Palestine Media Watch it has become illegal to give flowers to Fatah members recovering in the hospital. There's more. It is against Hamas law to offer consolation to any Fatah member or supporter who is injured, wounded or sick.
What kind of leadership would outlaw acts of kindness and decency?
The answer is Hamas.
Understand the thinking behind this type of behavior and you are significantly closer to understanding Hamas.
