So much for freedom among Muslim brothers. Now Gaza has become occupied land for Fatah members who wants freedom to take part in a convention in Bethlehem.
About 400 Fatah delegates in Gaza are being blocked by the ruling Hamas leadership from traveling to Bethlehem for the first official meeting of the 2,000-plus member Fatah Governing body. Last time there was such a convention was before the late PLO chief signed the Oslo Accords, a decision that was met with wide contention within Fatah ranks.
Normally Hamas accuses Israel for still occupying Gaza, even though Egypt also has closed its border to Gaza. That makes it one of the most funny occupations in World history.
Thats why its more than interesting to see that this time it is Al Fatah, who are accusing Hamas of being the occupation authority in Gaza. By not let their Muslim brothers not leave the Gaza strip, the United Nation supported Hams government act just like the Soviet Union under the rule of Joseph Stalin. No-one was allow to leave the Communist totalitarian regime.
This is the last twist and turn in the Arab Palestinian civil war between Muslim brothers.
When I see this in-fighting between Arab brothers, I am reminded about what God told Hagar about her son Ishmael.
«He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers».
Now, when we see this happening just in front of our eyes, we can only rejoice in the faithfulness of God of the Bible. His Words are the truth.
