"Moderate" Fatah Gunmen Rampage in Gaza

According to the Jerusalem Post:
Fatah gunmen went on a rampage in Gaza City on Saturday, raiding several schools and firing into the air in protest against the assassination of Gen. Jad Tayeh, a senior officer belonging to the Palestinian Authority's General Intelligence Force.

But according to AP News just a few days ago, Fatah was so "moderate" and looking to make "peace" with Hamas so they could both get the gravy train rolling in US Dollars of "aid" again.

Guess the RIFs (umm, that'd be both Fatah and Hamas, for those of you keeping scorecards) got short-changed. If you can't trust a fellow terrorist not to steal you blind, what is the world coming to these days? According to AP News:
The motive for the attack was not immediately clear, although officials speculated it could be an internal feud within the intelligence service. Security officials said the attackers took a black briefcase that Tayeh was carrying.

"This crime and its timing is a dangerous message. We won't accept it or stay silent," said Interior Minister Said Siyam.

He said the attack appeared timed to disrupt negotiations to form a national unity government.

Gee, do you think?
