  Palestinian Founding Fathers practice their craft
Palestinian Police Break Into Parliament - Yahoo! News: "GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - More than three dozen Palestinian police officers broke into the parliament building in Gaza City on Monday, firing in the air to protest a lack of bullets and equipment in what they said was a humiliating confrontation with Hamas.

The protest came a day after the worst internal fighting in Gaza in nearly a decade and underscored Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' difficulties in taking control of the unruly coastal strip.

On Sunday, Hamas gunmen attacked a local police station with assault rifles and rocket-propelled grenades. The deputy police chief of the Shati refugee camp was killed in the fighting, along with two civilians, and at least 50 people were wounded.

The parliament expressed its dissatisfaction with Abbas by setting a two-week deadline to form a new Cabinet to improve the fledgling government's performance. The vote was held in the parliament building in the
West Bank, with legislators from Gaza participating by video conference."
