In a brilliant political move....

...Militants in Gaza kidnap the Egyptian diplomat, once again displaying the political acumen of [insert idiot here].

So where exactly in Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" does it say "kidnap thy friends and allies"? Considering that the EU and the US are about to cut off the money pipe, do they really think they will be able to win sympathy and/or donations pulling off this type of shit. I mean, seriously, this is a way bad P.R. move, and while Im pretty sure neither Fatah or Hamas have anything to do with it (at least officially), it damn sure reflects poorly on their ability to control the territory and maintain law, order and security. I mean...come on! The Egyptian diplomat! Ah! Its so incredibly dumb I just want to smack my head against the wall!
