What about the Palestinians murdered by Palestinians?

David T makes an important point at Harry's Place about the Palestinian deaths in Gaza:

Since the beginning of the year 150 Palestinians have been killed in "internal violence" in Gaza.

In the past week, more than 50 have died in "clashes" at the Nahr al-Bared Palestinian Refugee camp.

I am looking for information on rallies and other events protesting these deaths.

So far I have checked the home pages of the following groups:

The International Solidarity Movement.

The Palestinian Solidarity Campaign.

The Scottish Palestinian Solidarity Campaign.

The Exeter Palestinian Solidarity Campaign.

The York Palestinian Solidarity Campaign.

The Brighton Palestinian Solidarity Campaign.

At the time of writing, they have nothing to say about these deaths at all.

RESPECT and the Stop the War Coalition both usually protest the deaths of Palestinians.

Not today, though.

It is as if these Palestinians have not died at all, or that their deaths are simply unimportant and not worthy of note.

Or doesn't it count if a Palestinian kills another Palestinian?
