Thread Name: BS: Hamas shuts down Gaza border...
Subject: RE: BS: Hamas shuts down Gaza border...
""Hamas forced the contractor operating it on behalf of the PA to stop, with allegations of price gouging and striking truck drivers apparently prompting the move.""
Not exactly the same as claims that Hamas acted out of a desire to control the crossing. Seems they may simply be trying to combat corruption.
Isn't that the legitimate pursuit of elected governments? And last I heard, Hamas, not Israel, governs the internal afrfairs of the Gaza strip.
So, you state it is fine for Hamas to starve those Gazan children, in order to collect money from the importers?
