2. Here's more on that.
A group of Palestinian armed men have burst into a Gaza City mourning tent set up for Yasir Arafat and fired shots in protest at the presence of his successor Mahmud Abbas.


Two Palestinian security men were fatally wounded in the exchange of fire between the armed men and bodyguards shielding Abbas, also known as Abu Mazin.

Abbas, 69, was uninjured, security officials said.

Speaking to reporters later, Abbas said that emotions were running high after the death of Yasir Arafat.

He denied any remarks were made against him. "No slogans were chanted against me. It was not an assassination attempt," he said.

Former Palestinian security minister Muhammad Dahlan, who served under Mahmud Abbas when he was prime minister last year, also denied that the shooting inside the mourning tent in Gaza this evening was an assassination bid.

4. Now the question is, how long for the IDF to get stupid
lets be honest if the foot was on the other shoe the palestinians would not quietly wait for that civil war to resolve itself

And I don't expect the IDF to do such either

So a very grim betting pool, how long until the IDF gets stupid and decides to intervene?

I give them a week.
