The situation in the Occupied Territories is deteriorating dramatically with Fatah and Hamas going head to head, neither seems to be ready to back down. I knew that the Palestinian PM's speeches and visit to Iran would not go unpunished and his return with over 30 million dollars to pay government employees was stopped at the border crossing. In case anybody was wondering, those who stopped him were not lowly Israeli army NCO's. On the contrary, it was Fatah gunmen, watched approvingly from closed circuit cameras that wire back to Israel's own "Situations room".

As usual the Palestinian's are fighting onwards, but in the wrong direction....
