Guess who's confiscating land?

There was a large rally in the town of Mughraqa, south of Gaza City, protesting Hamas' confiscating of land that belonged to the people of Gaza, some of it for generations.

The article is a little hard to decipher but it does mention a law that makes it illegal to sell land to non-Muslims.

As far as I can tell, none of the towns abandoned by Israel three years ago has ever been given to Gazans to build houses or apartments. Instead, Hamas uses at least some of them for military training and has shot rockets to Israel from them.
