Well, this is interesting and seems to show more of the war within the war across the Middle East.
Palestinian Authority leaders on Thursday expressed joy over the downfall of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s regime, with some calling on
Palestinians in the Gaza Strip to follow suit and topple the Hamas government.
I certainly wouldn't disagree and there are worlds of difference between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. Still, it's unusual to see it come out
so openly for just how far apart they see each other.
Several other Fatah officials expressed hope that Palestinians in the Gaza Strip would wage a revolution against Hamas.
“Now it’s Gaza’s turn to get rid of the Muslim Brotherhood branch,” said one official. “The dark era of political Islam has ended. The era
of hypocrisy and lies has ended and Gaza will soon witness its own revolution against Hamas.”
Now this is no small thing at all. Fatah is by no means a small, secondary group. They wrote the book the modern groups follow before mellowing into
something capable of running a half way effective Government.
It would also appear the Egyptians are very much against having anything more to do with helping Hamas. That is also very interesting to see happen
and answers some initial questions people had on why they were moving armor into the border area with Israel/Gaza.
The Egyptian authorities have also imposed severe restrictions on the movement of Palestinians through the Rafah terminal, they added.
There are unconfirmed reports that Cairo has also issued an order banning Hamas leaders and members from entering
(It's a long story with a lot more in both context and detail)
It was apparently to contain them, not help or support them. The Middle East is like a giant geo-political onion. One layer after another after yet
another and then, intertwined in so many ways.
This isn't the Breaking Alt. News forum to require additional links, but I found this one anyway to give more information and background on reasons
for a deep split between the Palestinian Authority and Mainstream Palestinians vs. Hamas.

A lot to keep track of and consider, I'd say.
