In an earlier post "Arafat's Successors" we learned how the younger generation of brainwashed Muslims of Al Aksa Martyrs Brigades (now Arafat Martyrs Brigades) views the older generation of Fateh terrorists as Zionists. This is a clear indicator of potential civil war within the Arab-occupied Yesha territories. However the Nazi Socialists of the EUrabian Fourth Reich are either illiterate, on drugs, or delusionally psychotic: EU presidency 'very satisfied' with Arafat succession process. (Via LGF)
THE HAGUE (AFP) - The Dutch presidency of the European Union said it is "very satisfied" with steps being taken by the Palestinian Authority for a smooth succession of power following the death of veteran leader Yasser Arafat.Gunmen fire at Abbas, Dahlan in Gaza.
The EU presidency is "very satisfied with the tranquil and peaceful temporary transfer of power," Dutch Foreign Minister Ben Bot told reporters in The Hague.
Fatah gunmen on Sunday evening stormed a mourning tent in Gaza City and opened fire to protest against the presence of the PLO's Mahmoud Abbas and former security minister Muhammed Dahlan.
Two Palestinian policemen were killed in the ensuing gun battle, which lasted for more than 10 minutes. Abbas was unhurt, but his bodyguards threw him to the ground as the shooting intensified.
The two were identified as Kamal Abu Kainas, member of Force 17, or presidential guard, and Raed Darwish of the Preventative Security Force.
Palestinian security officials said they were among scores of security officers guarding Abbas and Dahlan.
Palestinian security officials revealed Monday that this was not the first incident of its kind to erupt in the Gaza Strip since the death of Palestinian Authority chairman Yasser Arafat last week.
Over the weekend, Palestinian security sources reported, an incident similar to the purported assassination attempt against Abbas threatened to transpire, but PA security forces managed to defuse the situation before it devolved into violence.
