My Mideast Punchlines: why so much angst?

Gaza is still roiling over a video of a Palestinian member of Islamic State in the Sinai executing another Palestinian accused of collaborating with Hamas. The New York Times reports that two Gaza families, falling in line with Hamas, have disowned their sons.

Why so much angst? Palestinians executing other Palestinians has always been de rigeur. I wonder whether the two families would have disowned their sons if they had executed Israelis. On the other hand, I don’t wonder at all.
