Hamas brags of its achievements: "The Gaza beach is Islamic"

Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh spoke at the inauguration of a new mosque in Gaza today. Here are the highlights of his speech:

  • Even though nothing has been said officially, he is certain that Egypt's new leader Mohamed Morsi will "lift the siege on Gaza." 
  • Since Hamas took over Gaza, it closed cabarets, cafes and casinos where people could drink wine.
  • Hamas opened numerous mosques.
  • "We made the Gaza beach an Islamic beach we can be proud of."
  • The religious ministry also opened up Islamic chapels for vacationers.
The mosque that was opened was named after Said Seyam, former interior minister of the Gaza government, a major Hamas leader - and a former UNRWA teacher.
