Hamas just can't catch a break

They're coming for Hamas and it ain't gonna be pretty. Who's that you say... Israel, the CIA, Rambo... who?

Hey, wait a minute, that can't be right.

Fatah is preparing for a major showdown with Hamas in the Gaza Strip after the Muslim feast of Id al-Fitr, Palestinian sources said on Tuesday.

The sources said that Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has instructed his loyalists in Fatah and the PA security forces to be prepared for a "major security operation" in the Gaza Strip in the coming days.
While it's true that the myriad Palestinian factions are typically, figuratively AND literally at each other's throats, it ain't just any Curly, Larry or Mohammed calling for the takedown...
Former PA security chief Muhammed Dahlan called on Abbas to use his constitutional powers to resolve the crisis with Hamas.

Accusing Hamas of carrying out systematic assassinations against Fatah operatives in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Dahlan also accused Hamas of violating a cease-fire agreement with Fatah that was reached under the auspices of Egypt.

"Hamas's actions are leading us to civil war," he cautioned. "We call on President Abbas to assume his responsibilities and take decisive measures to end the crisis."
The tensions have been ratcheted up a little by the untimely and unexpected deaths of a number of Fatah functionaries, which for the geopolitically challenged, is the Gaza Strip version of heckling an adversary.

I'm thinkin', it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of homicidal maniacs.
