Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Continued senseless internecine violence surprises no one.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Militiamen from the ruling Hamas opened fire on government workers protesting their unpaid salaries on Sunday, touching off gunbattles with security forces loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas. Four people were killed in the violence.
Predictably...
After the deadly protest in Gaza City, dozens of supporters from Mr. Abbas' Fatah Party retaliated by ransacking and torching the empty Cabinet building in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
Perhaps we could send Jack Layton to Gaza to fix everything.

UPDATE: Accusations - Abbas planning coup
Hamas officials on Saturday accused Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of planning to stage a coup against the Hamas-led government by sending thousands of PA policemen to riot in various parts of the Gaza Strip.

Sorry this is not to the point of Abbas, though I've run my own piece on him. This is because I have run a piece on you today, Neocon and on Stephen Harper: http://nourishingobscurity.blogspot.com/2006/10/harpers-blockade-liberals-still.html
However, your e-mail blocks me and says I'm sending out spam, which I assure you I'm not. Is it possible to specifically unblock me and let me e-mail you from time to time?
