Finally, a European "gets it":

But one European observer denies that Gaza is headed towards a civil war. 'They are not `heading` towards a civil war. They are in the middle of one,' says Claude Moniquet, president of the Brussels-based European Strategic Intelligence and Security Center. Moniquet says the Palestinians have been in the midst of a civil war 'for several weeks, if not months.'

The Belgian counter-terrorism specialist says that European 'political correctness, whereby one would like to present the Palestinians as eternal victims and never, in any case, as the actors (and the persons with primary responsibility) for their own failures,' is what has prevented the violence tearing apart the Palestinian territories from being labeled a civil war.
