Palestinians run as they try to cross to the Israel side at the Erez Crossing, in the northern Gaza Strip, Saturday, June 16, 2007. Dozens of Palestinians converged on the Erez crossing with Israel on Saturday, trying to leave the Gaza Strip following Hamas' takeover.So much for Israel being evil Zionists. Faced with the prospect of a Hamas-run Gaza, these Palestinians - presumably aligned to Fatah in some way - choose the relative safety of Israel.
Why is that?
So Israel withdraws from Gaza. Palestinians vote in Hamas with their new-found freedom. Hamas (Islamofascist terrorists) and Fatah (secular nationalist terrorists) kill each other. Hamas eventually defeats Fatah in Gaza. And with it, so goes freedom for the Palestinians.
