The emir visits Gaza, and Hamas' inhumane siege continues


The emir visits Gaza, and Hamas' inhumane siege continues

The Qatari emir's visit to Gaza is being politicized by both Hamas and Fatah, and Hamas is using it to show that it is the true representative of "Palestine" while Fatah's representatives in Gaza are boycotting the meeting. In fact, the emir is not even visiting Ramallah (or Jerusalem.)

As this video shows, Hamas is very pleased at the legitimacy (and aid) that Qatar is giving them.



Meanwhile, from KUNA:
The Interior Ministry in Gaza said on Monday that Rafah Crossing would be closed Tuesdayon the occasion of Qatari Amir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani's visit to Gaza.

All travelers planning to use the Rafah Crossing will be delayed until Wednesday, the ministry said in a statement.
Sorry, medical patients of Gaza - Hamas' politics is more important than your lives!

"Human rights" groups are silent on Hamas' disregard for the freedom of movement and well being of Gazans. Because, well, Hamas isn't Zionist enough to elicit the knee-jerk condemnations they are so used to issuing in other circumstances.
