When ordinary decent citizens are starting to have temporary breathing space from Israeli bullets and mortars, something else chased them back into hiding. Again, bullets and mortars but this time from fellow Palestinians. The never-ending scuffle between Hamas and Fatah. Hamas held majority of the Palestinian parliamentary seats earlier this year. President Mahmoud Abbas from Fatah wants another election as soon as possible to oust Hamas’ majority. Bla bla bla, bla bla bla, and the next thing, bang bang! People lay dead on the streets. Stupid.

The story is the same throughout the world. The difference is the excessiveness of the situation. That’s the story of men and their quest to conquer the corridors of power.
