Palestinian W. Bank residents: 'We don't deserve a state'

What can you say, maybe such self realisation will be engaged by their leaders, before its too late.

As the fighting between Fatah and Hamas continues in the Gaza Strip, many residents here said Saturday that they were concerned that the international community would turn its back on the Palestinians.

Although the street battles remain restricted to the Gaza Strip, tensions are mounting in the West Bank between supporters of the two parties, particularly in the aftermath of the abduction of several Hamas figures by Fatah gunmen over the past few days.

Many Hamas leaders in the West Bank, where Fatah remains the stronger party, are said to have gone underground for fear of being targeted by members of Fatah's armed wing, the Aksa Martyrs Brigades.

On Friday, the group issued a warning to all Hamas leaders in the West Bank to condemn the fighting in the Gaza Strip or face retaliatory measures.

On Saturday, a number of Hamas figures in the West Bank came under attack by Fatah gunmen. In Kalkilya, the gunmen opened fire at the home of the city's Hamas mayor, Wajih Kawwas. No one was hurt. In Nablus, three Hamas members were kidnapped and the offices of the movement's legislators were set on fire.

Their culture of death made me believe that years ago!

(emphasis added by moi)

We've seen them mercilessly slaughter innocent people for decades.

A few years ago a survey showed that 87% or so of the Palestinian population was in favor of continued terror attacks against Israel, and .5% more than that was in favor of totally removing the Jews from all of "Palestine".

Eventually a series of attacks will be launched against Israel to which Israel will react, and this will bring them all together for a while.
