Palestinian Civil War Rages On

More on the Palestinian civil war, you know, the actual civil war where two factions within the government of a given country are fighting for total control of the given country, unlike Iraq:

The sound of gunfire and grenades echoed across Gaza City on Sunday as rival Palestinian factions fought in the streets in an increasingly bloody power struggle.

Twenty-five people have been reported killed since late Thursday, including a 12-year-old boy who was caught in the crossfire Saturday night, hospital officials said.

The boy's father, a local Fatah leader, was injured in the gunbattle. From his hospital bed, he told the Associated Press that Hamas gunmen attacked his home.

The past week has seen the worst fighting yet between Hamas supporters controlling the Palestinian parliament and the Fatah faction loyal to the Palestinian president.

Hmm. When it's the Religion of Peace killing the Religion of Peace - who does the media blame?
