Remember, it’s just timing of these attacks (and the safeguarding of their rule) that they’re in disagreement with. Reading from the same Islamic texts, they all hate the Jews and want them dead.

Radical Islamist Salafists in Gaza have threatened to launch projectiles at Israel in retribution for what they call “crimes and conspiracies” conducted by the Strip’s ruling faction, Palestinian news agency Ma’an reported Tuesday.
The reported announcement came in a joint statement by various Salafist jihadists organizations in the coastal Palestinian enclave.
The Salafists were responding to an alleged roundup by Hamas of members of the fundamentalist movement suspected of targeting the latter in a string of recent bombings.
“The Salafists have decided to respond to these crimes and these blows dealt by Hamas by pointing rockets towards the occupation (Israel) and carrying out reprisals,” AFP quoted the statement issued by Palestinian Salafists as saying.
