Some killers are more equal than other killers

US President George W. Bush signs a bill into law designed to outlawing the funding to Hamas run Palestinian Authority. Meanwhile the bill leaves the door open for the US administration to continue fund Hamas’ rival Fatah. Fatah gunmen loyal to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas opened fire on a crowd of Hamas supporters reports Ha’aretz.
Gunmen loyal to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah opened fire on Hamas members in the West Bank city of Nablus on Friday, wounding at least nine people, hospital officials and witnesses said. At least one of the wounded was said to be in very serious condition.

They said the gunmen opened fire as about 200 Hamas activists and armed men were preparing for a rally in the city of Nablus. There was no immediate comment from Fatah.
I suppose the Bush Adminstration wants us to believe the difference between Fatah and Hamas is all about the ‘nuance’.
