HQ of Arafat's nephew hit as Gaza clashes intensify
At least 12 Palestinians were reported wounded in fighting yesterday in Gaza between Palestinian Fatah militants and Palestinian Authority security forces. The conflict centers on a round of new security appointments made by PA Chairman Yasser Arafat in the past few days, including that of Arafat's nephew Musa.

Medics in Rafah said 12 people had been brought to hospital with wounds sustained when hundreds of armed Fatah members, together with an angry crowd numbering hundreds more, attacked the headquarters of the Palestinian military intelligence in Rafah yesterday with gunfire, Molotov cocktails and stones.

After about a two-hour siege, forces inside the eastern Rafah compound called on the attackers to hold fire, and a cease-fire was attained with the aid of local intermediaries.

Leaflets distributed in the Strip by the military wing of Fatah following the attack stated that it came as a protest against the appointment of Musa Arafat to the head of General Security, one of three new security organizations created by his uncle, Yasser Arafat.

1. A little curious, if I may..
Are you on the side of the Jenin Martyrs' Brigade on this matter, or instead just taking delight that opposing groups of people that you dislike are a short step away from killing each other?

5. It's about...
not reacting with knee-JERK regularity.

But your "delight" is duly noted...just don't get too excited.

I could fly off half-cocked in some nonsensical fit, but that routine is already taken.. wouldn't want to impose myself on what others do so well already. So instead, I'll indeed wait to see what's what before I decide on anything.

Did I show up to a Klan rally in a little skirt? I wouldn't think this a questionable stance for me to take..
