Perhaps, an Islamic Republic of Palestian may be a new rival to the Islamic Republic of Iran....




So, the “Palestinian Authority” president, Mahmoud Abbas, finally had it with the “Hamas-led” government on Thursday night and not only dismissed them, but also “declared a state of emergency.” Although, there is certainly a problem of reinforcing security control over the Gaza Strip, because of what Hamas went through to get ride of “his Fatah loyalist there.”! The Mecca deal is now gone down to the very bottom of the history and may be viewed as another political failure achieved by the Arab league.
Of course, as we know Mr. Haniya, the “Prime Minister,” did not receive the blow in an unlikely manner. No, Mr. Haniya was getting ready to show his most important political move, by occupying the Gaza Strip, and getting the Green Flag of the Islamic State up there! In a meantime, a Hamas spokesman, Sami Abu Zuhri, expresses that “Prime Minister Haniya remains the head of the government even if it was dissolved by the president.”
Some believe that Mr. Abbas’s decision to dismiss the “prime minister” was a wrong political move, because it was perceived as a “US-planned-move,” and as a result provoked Mr. Haniya to order his militia to storm into security compounds; capturing “the preventive security force,” and eventually raising their “flag” at top of the compound, and finally, taking control over “Aqsa Martyr’s Brigades” in Gaza.
And some believe that Mr. Abbas’s decision was an on-time political call, for he can now lead the West Bank into a better future! A good and peaceful relation with Israel, plus having an independent State of Palestine, sounds too good to be true, for Hamas is not going anywhere. In fact to achieve their goal, a Hamas military spokesman, Islam Shahawan, announces that, “we are telling our people that the past era has ended and will not return”. And he adds, “The era of justice and Islamic rule has arrived.”
Meanwhile Palestinians are blaming “not only their warring factions but also the international community for its failure to embrace the peace deal signed in Mecca by easing restrictions on the unity government.” However, we should also keep in mind that “Palestinians are unlikely to want to give up the idea of a Palestinian nation in both areas, with East Jerusalem as its capital,” as we know “Hamas has a significant number of followers in the West Bank, too, even if its fighters are far less well equipped and largely stay underground because of the Israeli occupation.”
As we do not know the fate of the Middle East we can only guess as to how the situation is going to be taken to another level. Politically speaking, the “road to peace in the Middle East” is a very narrow one. With the creation of another Islamic State in the Middle East, the spread of certain ideology is faster and far inevitable, and future preventive measures will not be of use. Perhaps, an Islamic Republic of Palestine may be a new rival to the Islamic Republic of Iran, but it will not be of any use in keeping the peace in the Middle East! Or I may be wrong.

The whole state of affairs has the IR's fingerprint on it. The IR is playing a very dangerous game in the region...and It's only a matter to time that the gloves comes off and guess who has the bigger fist...
