"GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Jun 1, 2006 (AP)— Thousands of Palestinian police officers joined a protest over unpaid wages Thursday, firing in the air and smashing windows. It was the most violent demonstration yet against the Hamas-led government.Israel, the US and the EU have provoked this crisis in the Palestinian territories and the blood is going to be on their hands. If there ever was an axis-of-evil it is the concerted efforts of these three to deny the Palestinians their rights. Israel is a pseudo-state that was born out of terrorism. It is also a racist theocracy that is armed to the teeth with nukes and god knows what else because apparently he sanctions all of this. Hells bells and buckets of shit, if we were ever lacking a rogue state as an example, then we could always have Israel.

Just how many UN resolutions have been defied and vetoed here? I've lost count.
The Palestinians need to wake up fast and realize that they are being played off against each other in a classic "divide and rule" ploy - the real issue is the illegitimacy of the Israeli occupation and the theft of Palestinian land.
Their enemy is neither Hamas nor Abbas.
But why on earth is Team America and Team Europe supporting this insanity?
