More young Gazans continue to needlessly lose their lives in response to their leaders ‘instigated pantomime of stone and smoke bomb throwing and other futile provocative attacks across the Gaza Israel border.
For decades Hamas , Gaza’s rulers or more precisely its Jailers, have repressed the entire people of the strip, ruling through terror and the imagined fear of the bogeyman: Israel and the West. A time-honoured instrument of deflection from their own paralysis and incompetence, the “imminent” attack from Israel has always kept alive Hamas’s grip on power and provided its leaders with a veneer of political legitimacy and raison d’etre.
Nero played the fiddle while Rome burned. Hamas plays the time-honoured Islamic trump card : Allah commands you in the Quran to cleanse the land of the Jewish Kuffar.
Meantime Gaza burns.
