Hamas Blockades Gaza: Guardian Fails To Spot Suffering Citizens

REMEMBER that Israeli blockade of Gaza? You know the one that dominated the news? The Guardian wrote:

Israel’s Gaza blockade targets Hamas while citizens suffer

Rob Shepherd has news that has not featured on the nightly news: Hamas is now blockading Gaza.

The blockade will apply to all goods that can’t be produced locally or obtained from elsewhere. The reason for the move is partly that like all Islamo-fascist outfits Hamas does not look kindly on things that bear the fingerprint of the dreaded Jew — or as the Jerusalem Post reported it, they’d rather do business with the Arabs — but also it’s because, now that imports are flowing in from Israel, the terror group’s extortion rackets from the tunnels between Gaza and Egypt are yielding a good deal less in revenue than they used to.

But surely the vitals are getting through?

“Hamas has also stopped the daily fuel supplies it used to receive from Israeli energy company Dor Alon. In the past, Dor Alon used to transfer about 1,000 liters a day to the Gaza Strip for the power station, but now Hamas prefers to receive its fuel from a contraband pipeline it has set up through a tunnel under the Egyptian-Gazan border”.

This looks like a humanitarian issue. Will it feature high on the the mainstream news agenda..?
