Hamas adopts Israeli occupation methods in repressing Palestinians

This story is outrageous. Hamas is forcing Gazans to close tunnels to Egypt. This is criminal. There would probably be mass starvation in Gaza if it weren’t for the tunnels. The tunnels may be used for weapons – they are certainly used for basic supplies for residents of Gaza, who would otherwise be subject to the kinds of restriction by Israel that would make basic life impossible. That this is being done because of allegations of an attempt to kidnap Israelis – I mean, whose interests is Hamas protecting? Starving Gazans to protect Israeli security is standard Israeli operating procedure. Now it’s Hamas’s methods too. Hamas is accelerating its road to Fatah style collaboration.

Meanwhile, settlers launch another pogrom in the West Bank. Don’t hold your breath on that investigation they’re promising to bring.
