Misfortune hits the Palestinians, yet again

It seems the Palestinian people are once again up crap creek without a paddles. This time it is 2 rival factions, Fatah and Hamas that are fighting, to the death it seems, for control. Hamas are (according to themselves, the US, EU and other states) terrorists who wish to eradicate Israel, refusing to accept her. Hamas also engage in violence to achieve their aims. There are the ones who were voted in by Palestinians in the last election, they and Fatah (almost as bad due to corruption) are fighting for control. Why are the Palestinians so unfortunate? IT seems that one step forward = 10 steps back for them. I predict that it is only a matter of time before the newest Palestinian administration begin to blame Israel/US for their current troubles, as they have for all others.

You are right! The paletinian people don't going anywhere with their violence and killing. They always choose the wrong ways and after that they find someone lse to blame on their condition. Most of the time they blame Israel. The Palestinian people was wrong badly when choose Hamas, one of the bigest terror organization in the middle east, for the administration about two years ago. Now, Hamas is ruling his people with terror and hurting the whole area. It seems like the Paletinian are now separated for two different nations, The Hamas and The Fatah.

yes 2 tiny statelets. I feel so sorry for the voiceless Palestinian children who are caught up in the cycle of violence. It seems that Palestinians constantly make the wrong choices - they backed Saddam H in the first gulf war, voting Hamas into power wasn't very clever either.
