Palestinian "Authority" Discovers Hamas Assassination Tunnels

Way to give it the ol' college try, boys!

The Palestinian Authority security forces have foiled an attempt by Hamas to assassinate senior PA leaders in the Gaza Strip, including PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Fatah legislator Muhammad Dahlan, Palestinian security sources said Monday.

The sources said that over the past few days the security forces discovered a number of underground tunnels in the northern Gaza Strip that were dug along major roads used by PA and Fatah leaders. Some of the tunnels were also discovered beneath the homes of top Fatah officials in the same area, the sources said.

Abdel Hakim Awad, a senior Fatah official in the Gaza Strip, said tons of explosives were discovered in the tunnels, some of which were traced back to the interior of Hamas-controlled mosques.

I used to think the Palestinians were a disgrace, but now I just think they're a joke; I laughed out loud when I read the article. It reminded me of how my friends and I, when we were little kids, used to dig snow forts and tunnels and so forth and then have snowball fights to see who could conquer who.

Except that we never got money from the U.N. or had leftist academics publish our "resistance" poetry when our Zionist parents dragged us inside for dinner.

This sort of stuff does certainly show us one thing, though, for anyone willing to take it seriously: Namely, that these guys have no desire to have their own state. Oh sure, they bitch and moan about how they're being oppressed, but is it really a country they want?

I don't think it is. Even imagine Israel out of the picture: can you really see them disarming and deciding to lead quiet lives as civil servants instead? I can't. They're having too much fun. Their view of their country, so far as that term applies, seems to be much closer to the Thunderdome motto: Two factions enter, one faction leaves.

I wonder if we could somehow get Hezbollah involved? Just to, you know, see if this situation could get any more fucked up and barbaric than it already is.

My suggestion? Cannibalism. You can do it, guys. Go for the gold.
