Hamas Being "Democratic" again...

Blast at Palestinian intelligence headquarters
Palestinian intelligence chief seriously wounded

GAZA CITY (AP) - A powerful explosion ripped through Palestinian intelligence headquarters on Saturday, killing one man and wounding six, including the intelligence chief, security officials said.
The blast went off in the building's elevator as the intelligence chief, Gen. Tareq Abu Rajeb and his bodyguards were in the area, the officials said.
The wounded were driven to a nearby hospital in cars of the intelligence service. Fellow agents fired in the air from the windows of the vehicles to clear the way.
The blast came at a time of growing tension between the Hamas government and the Palestinian security forces loyal to moderate President Mahmoud Abbas.
