    GAZA, (PIC)-- The Palestinian government in Gaza congratulated the Egyptian people and revolutionists after the announcement of Hosni Mubarak's resignation and wished them more progress, prosperity and a new era of freedom.

    In a press release on Friday, the government hailed the Egyptian people for their steadfastness and determination to make better future not only for them but for the whole region.

    For his part, Palestinian premier Ismail Haneyya said in a brief statement that the Egyptian revolution has made a new history for the Arab nation.

    "We congratulate the Egyptian people on this outcome and consider it a victory for their will and sacrifices, and the start of a new era in Egypt and the region," the spokesman said in a press statement to the Palestinian information center (PIC).

    In a separate statement issued by its information office, Hamas Movement congratulated the great people of Egypt on their successful revolution and their achievement of their goals.

    In a related incident, thousands of Palestinians took to the streets in the Gaza Strip on Friday night to celebrate Mubarak's resignation.

    Cars drove through the streets honking their horns and Hamas resistance fighters fired their guns in the air. Many Gazans all over the Strip distributed sweets and candies and exchanged congratulations on this event, according to PIC reporters.

    Thanks, Tinny, for bringing this ancient history out of the closet. What do you suppose the outcome of the new trial will be? Does this give the Palestinian people the desire to get rid of their Hamass oppressors?

    Think of the great celebration there would be if they passed out beer and schnapps. Like the Mardi Gras on steroids. (And with AK 47s)
