Hamas vs Jund Ansar Allah or mad vs madder.

Unless you like the headline Hamas gunmen clash with radicals (by Haaretz) better.

Speaking before weekly prayers, Abdel-Latif Moussa - known to followers by the al-Qaida-style nom de guerre Abu al-Nour al-Maqdessi - announced the start of theocratic rule in the Palestinian territories, starting at Rafah, and vowed to implement Islamic laws.
OK, it certainly makes sense. But no, Hamas folks are not happy with it:
Hamas official Sami Abu Zuhri called Maqdessi's speech "wrong thinking" and in a clear reference to al-Qaida added that his group "has no affiliation with foreign groups". Hamas's Interior Ministry was blunter, calling Maqdessi "mad".
Curiosier and curiosier...
