Politics can be a dangerous game

And it the Palestinians killing each other in Parliament

RAMALLAH, West Bank - Hundreds Palestinian security forces loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas went on a violent rampage against the Hamas-led government Monday night, riddling the parliament and Cabinet buildings with bullets to protest an attack against their comrades in the Gaza Strip by Hamas gunmen.

The security men shot out the windows of the parliament before storming the two-building Cabinet complex, where they smashed furniture, destroyed computers and scattered documents. No casualties were reported. But the mob set fire to one of the Cabinet buildings, causing heavy damage as flames quickly spread.

Seems when dealing with a terrorist organization, the only language that reaches them is violence. Talking, negotiating, pleading... doesn't seem to work. I've said it before, but if I were the Israelis I'd be glad the Palestinians are shooting at each other as opposed to at me...
