    Default Palestinian Democracy is dead

    JERUSALEM, June 14 ? The Palestinian territories seemed headed Thursday to a turbulent political divide. Masked Hamas gunmen took control of the Gaza Strip and the Fatah president dissolved the 3-month-old unity government, declaring a state of emergency and plans for elections.

    I guess Democracy can't work everywhere.

    Apparently not where Islam, the "religion of peace" is practiced. Once a homocidal maniac, always a homocidal maniac.

    What a mess over there. You would think they could work together for some type of stable government and safety for the citizens of Palestine. You are right Big democracy wont work there but it because the leaders over there dont want it to. It seems to me that they enjoy a life of dodging car bombs and carrying dead children around the city crying when all they have to do is learn to be diplomatic with eachother.

    That makes sense. The west comes to the area, takes control, then pushes some of it's residents out and carves out borders for the rest. So Palestinians should sit by and watch others enjoy their home while they live in refugee camps. Then you blame Islam when they can't get along.

    Haven't they had some time to work that out? Does all of that past history now force Shiites to kill Sunnis, and vice-versa? What about the sectarian violence? It seems to be a deadly competition to see who is more theologically pure. Whoever is more pure gets to behead the others. It sounds like an interesting religion, where do I sign up?

    Addendum: Some brave soul hit the little button next to my name and typed "flop is racist". What race am I against, genius? The Islam "race", the Sunni "race", or the Shiite "race"?
