Tension? You ain't kidding

No doubt by now you've heard about the mounting trouble in the Gaza Strip, where Hamas is overrunning PA security positions, effectively mounting a coup within the territory. I cannot imagine Israel remaining silent on these developments for long.

Hamas is, was, and always will be a terrorist organization. Clearly they are willing to turn against their own population in an attempt to bolster their position. This is not a series of maneuvers that are in the interest of the Palestinian people or any peace process. Creating civil unrest, heightening tensions, and provoking other actors in the region will only derail any progress that has been made in recent months.
