Tell me, what kind of government security force wears ski masks and walks around with machine guns pointing up? I mean internal security here, not even armies.
Anyway, your telling lead line for the day:
GAZA (Reuters) – Rival Palestinian forces faced off at Gaza’s border crossing with Egypt on Friday after border guards loyal to President Mahmoud Abbas caught a Hamas official trying to smuggle in 639,000 euros ($804,000), authorities said. (NY Times)
Border guards loyal to the President against “security forces” loyal to the legislature?
Combine with trouble in Egypt. There’s an awful lot of dry kindling lying around the Middle East nowadays…
