The author reflects on the violent political situation in Gaza Strip. He looks at the reasons for the fighting between the political party Fatah and the radical Islamic fundamentalist organization Hamas, which has put any attempts at peace on hold. The author believes that the tardy aid efforts of the international community have further worsened situations. He suggests that the divide and rule policy of the western nations has to be stopped for any positive change in the situation.
