On Thursday morning, to mark the fifth anniversary of Gilad Shalit's abduction, the International Committee of the Red Cross called on Hamas to prove that Gilad Shalit was still alive.
Thursday afternoon, Gaza protesters attacked the Red Cross headquarters in Gaza in anger over that request.
On Friday, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon demanded that Hamas release Shalit (going way beyond what Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and other "humanitarian" organizations were willing to demand.)
On Saturday, the UN headquarters in Gaza City was bombed. The compound includes the offices of UNESCO and the United Nations Coordinator in Gaza. One was injured and Hamas closed off the area.
Think there is a pattern there?
