Doing the Debka

Reuters reports:

At a beachside camp run by the Islamist movement Hamas, youngsters race into the sea carrying the green flags of the group, which took over the territory in a civil war against the Fatah group of President Mahmoud Abbas two months ago.

At a camp run by the secular Fatah, yellow flags dominate, and boys and girls perform the Debka folk dance together – a mixed activity frowned on by Islamists.

I’m guessing that involves dancing around while making a whole lot of unsubstantiated claims that mostly prove to be untrue.

Update: If you are someone who actually thinks Debka is reliable, then take note of this:

Shamis (one of the founders of the Debka site – Aussie Dave) concedes some Debka reports haven’t panned out, but says his site is as reliable as the mainstream media.
