Great moments in Palestinian Arab democracy

On Friday, it was announced that Mahmoud Abbas would be "elected unopposed” without a formal vote as Fatah's "general commander."

Fatah might need a refresher course on what the primary definition of the word "elected" is.

Meanwhile, the peaceful Palestinian Arabs started shooting at each other near the conference - in a dispute over parking. Not just regular citizens, of course, but the best and the brightest of Palestinian Arab society: the gunshots were between members of the Presidential Guard and members of Palestinian General Intelligence.
