It looks like there is a rebellion against the corrupt and autocratic leadership of Yasir `Arafat in Gaza.  High time.  Even in Lebanon, he would only appoint the most corrupt and least qualified people to posts, including military posts.  But before Israel or US get excited, the new leaders will be less friendly toward Israel and US.  Take Ghazi Al-Jibali (Gaza police chief who was kidnapped and released earlier today): this man has a notorious repuation for financial corruption and brutal (mis)treatment of prisoners.  He almost is qualified to be appointed by the US to a puppet government position in...Iraq.
