Palestinian cognitive dissonance:

Following a suicide bombing today in an Eilat bakery, responsibility for the heroic deed was quickly taken by "Two Palestinian militant groups, Islamic Jihad and the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade" who " have claimed joint responsibility for the attack, saying... the bombing was carried out to show Palestinians they should attack Israel instead of each other. Palestinian infighting has claimed more than 60 lives, during the past month. "

However, Hamas, the peace loving proponent of the religion of peace in Palestine, put the glorious military operation in its proper context:

"A spokesman for Hamas, which controls the Palestinian government, called the bombing a natural response to Israel's policies. "

But let's not lose heart, folks: For while "One of the groups claiming responsibility for the bombing -- the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade - is affiliated with Palestinian President Mahoud Abbes' Fatah movement .. a spokesman for Fatah condemned the attack. "

So there we have it: three Israelis who went to buy some foccaccias or croissants at a bakery in Eilat were shredded to pieces, because Palestinians are killing each other in droves. While it is all, of course, Israel's fault, the leader of of the group that co-sponsored the carnage condemns the carnage.

Makes perfect sense.
