Thread Name: BS: Hamas shuts down Gaza border...
Subject: RE: BS: Hamas shuts down Gaza border...
""Officials in Gaza, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the issue, said the Hamas government in Gaza has fired the company that operates the terminal after a dispute over the collection of customs revenue.

The officials told Ma'an that Hamas wants to keep the taxes, which are usually paid to the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in the West Bank.

Of course, the fact that Hamas did speak on the subject and state that they changed the operator in response to corruption, has to be a lie, because you can't ever believe anything an Arab tells you, eh Keith?

Oh, yeah, you believed those anonymous officials! They were Arabs, weren't they?

I guess they must be the good Arabs whose story gels with your prejudice.
