Palestinian Civil War Imitates Scarface

The civil war in the Palestinian territory continues to metastasize. Gaius alerts us to a "new and creative way of whacking one another" that the state-deserving Palestinian leadership has invented. And because there are no Super Wal-Marts in metro Gaza City, said approach saves on ammunition costs and reduces lengthy reload times:

In an especially grisly incident, Hamas militants kidnapped an officer in a Fatah-linked security force, took him to the roof of a 15-story apartment building and threw him off... That set off skirmishes through the city, including gun battles and shelling.

Alejandro Sosa is said to be pleased with the new tactic.

Captain Jamil Hussein, however, was unavailable for comment. And there's no word from Reuters on collateral damage that may have been sustained in Qana (or anywhere else in the territories, for that matter).
