PalArab news roundup 1-26-09

The Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades shot a rocket towards Israel that fell short in Beit Hanoun, and Hamas attacked them, injuring some and arresting the rest.

A "Palestinian political expert" was satisfied with Hamas' performance during the war, because he says that the definition of success is the fact that Hamas managed to keep shooting rockets at Israeli civilians throughout.

An unknown group called the "Gaza Martyrs Brigades" took responsibility for firebombing the car of a pro-Hamas professor in the West Bank.

Last Thursday, PA official Yasser Abed Rabbo told journalists that Israel's stopping its operations before dismantling Hamas was a "big mistake" and that Hamas' survival is "bad for all of us."

A British "expert" has accused Israel of using uranium bombs in Rafah. He bases his expert testimony on the similarities he saw on television between explosions in Rafah where Israel was attacking tunnels and explosions he saw in Lebanon where Israel was attacking underground bunkers. I guess this "expert" doesn't realize that Israel didn't use any uranium in Lebanon either. (Arab media has been accusing Israel of using depleted uranium armaments for a while now, and the ever-vigilant UN is investigating these ludicrous claims.)

A Palestinian Arab human rights organization is calling on Hamas to stop its murders, attacks and torture of Fatah members in Gaza.

Gaza terrorists are saying that angels from Allah came down from heaven to guide them during their fighting. The angels must have felt that the ratio of 100-1 deaths was really good. (h/t Womble)
