Schadenfreude ist die schönste Freude!

What finds its way into the international media nowadays is really as amazing as telling. Some savages kill each other and a poor cop to boot in what sounds to me like a family brawl.
Five killed in Gaza clan fighting

Five Palestinians have been killed and at least 10 hurt in a firefight between two rival clans in the northern Gaza Strip, witnesses and medics have said.

The two groups used assault rifles and grenades in the town of Beit Hanoun. One of those killed was a policeman.
"Assault rifles and grenades" probably bought with money so generously lavished on that murderous scum by the European Union! But really, would that incident have been worth an international headline had this happened among any other enthnic group anywhere else on this globe? Okay, let me rephrase that, among any other enthnic group anywhere else on this globe apart from some rednecks over a couple of sixpacks in West Virginia because it would have made GREAT malicious headlines in the German press regarding American capitalism and the cold and violent society it creates. But back to the pleasures of the Gaza Strip:
It is a latest in a series of violent incidents since the Israeli pullout from Gaza in September.
To be honest, as far as malice is concerned, I, for one, have hardly ever had a more apt sensation of schadenfreude!
