A couple of months ago I heard a scholar speak about Israel. One of his concerns for the future at that time was fighting or, G-d forbid, civil war between the Palestinian factions. It would be difficult for the Palestinians and put Israel into an untenable situation – potentially requiring them to go and stop a war between the Palestinians. What a nightmare that could be.
Today, some of the Palestinians against Hamas revolted, going to their headquarters, breaking in firing weapons and kidnapping an official. Read the details in Haaretz.
I hope their internal challenges lead to stability and the presence of a government which is non-terrorist and represents the people.
