Pessimism in Palestine

Commenter Paul gave a link to a story on a Palestinian's look into the future.

Issa Kakaki, a Fatah legislator from Bethlehem, addressed his newspaper article to "Mr. Earthquake expert" and asked for a strong earthquake, "at least seven degrees, accompanied with a tsunami to hit this land as soon as possible.
Here is why he thinks only an earthquake and tsunami will fix the Palestinian's problems:
"I do not exaggerate when I say that I am afraid of the newspaper or the daylight.... Civil wars are in the horizon, starvation also. These are our news, and this is our reality... We are people who do nothing except issue statements and accusations, and the clans clash and then we solve these clashes and differences."
Do I note a lack of national unity here?
