Outrageous Incitement

And you thought I was going to rant about the Israeli Left inciting against the settlers or Chareidim...or perhaps the Extreme Right inciting against Palestinians...or maybe Palestinians inciting against Israel or Jews?

Wrong and Wrong and Wrong.

The Jerusalem Post reports:

In yet another indication of growing tensions between the two movements, Fatah sympathizers in the Gaza Strip have begun boycotting Hamas-controlled mosques, accusing the Islamist movement of inciting against their leaders.

On Friday, thousands of worshipers refused to enter the Farouk Mosque in the Nusseirat refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip, saying the preacher was planning to verbally attack Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and other PA leaders. The Fatah supporters prayed in the streets while their Hamas rivals prayed inside the mosque.

Like most mosques in the Strip, the Farouk Mosque is controlled by Hamas. Leaders of Abbas's Fatah party have in recent weeks expressed deep concern over "incitement" in the mosques, saying Hamas preachers were exploiting Friday prayers to launch scathing attacks on them.

Hamas officials dismissed the allegations as "lies" and said the only incitement was that coming from Fatah.

Reminds me of the Iran and Iraq war. For the time being, its best to take a step back and let them duke it out. We'll have to deal with the outcome regardless...but at least we can take a slight breather now (if only for a few minutes).

Did you consider "Dumb & Dumber" as a headline?

Somehow, though I'm far to his right, I agree with Rafi G. it seems like every time we step back and let them "duke it out" the we're the ones who get blamed even if we had nothing to with it.
