Fatah, Hamas not so united over bin Laden’s death

If anyone still imagines that the Palestinian Authority/Hamas mind-meld will last, one only has to look at their disparate responses to the killing of Osama bin Laden by U.S. special forces.

The Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, reports that Hamas believes that President Obama had ordered the murder of a “holy warrior.” The PA, however, said that bin Laden’s death “could advance the cause of peace.”

This may not be the marriage made in Paradise as reactionary ideologues in the Near East had hoped.

One thought on “Fatah, Hamas not so united over bin Laden’s death”

  1. Yes, they both look well in suits: Take off the suits, leave them naked – and they are both what they have always been: anti-semitic zealots inflicting and ntending to inflict bloodshed on Israel.
