Behind the Gaza Unrest

In the Lebanon Daily Star, Khalil Shikaki himself gives an analysis similar to but more knowledgeable than my own. In particular, he sees this as people trying to position themselves for leadership of the "Young Guard," and represents merely the beginning of such incidents. Meanwhile, the Jerusalem Post points a finger at Muhammad Dahlan. Despite his reformist tendencies, Dahlan knows how to play in the gang-like arena of Palestinian politics, and these rumors probably have more than a grain of truth to them.
