CIVIL WAR--OR WEST SIDE STORY? Planet Israel tends towards the latter:
It's being called a "coup," and a "civil war," neither of which are accurate because they imply that there exists a "Palestinian" people, a unified nation, which is struggling over its future direction and purpose. In reality, this is just clans and gangs in a subnational, largely illiterate society, fighting over money. The savage killing is a result of the policies of misguided, wealthy western states, a consequence of fifty years of broad-minded political correctness run wild.
Perhaps, but part of the turf they are fighting over is Israel.
