Gaza hevdes å være på sultedødens rand, men det hindrer visst ikke innbyggerne i å bruke store summer på terror:

A few days ago, a striking statement was made by Palestinian sources in Damascus through Asharq Al-Awsat, suggesting that the Hamas Islamic movement is financially thriving.

At a time when the people of Gaza were left without a loaf of bread, Hamas was paying approximately 18,000 militants who are associated with the movement- what amounts to 16 million dollars a month.

This statement comes at a time when United Nations Special Humanitarian Envoy, Mr. Abdulaziz Arrukban, highlighted to the Kuwaiti «Alqabas» newspaper the tragic Palestinian humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip, and how 60 percent of the population survives on 1.5 dollars per day, while 80 percent solely depend on aid for survival.

Kommentator Tariq Alhomayed legger hovedansvaret ikke på Hamas selv, men på dem som støtter opp under og finansierer jihadistene:

However, Hamas and its policies are not to be blamed, but those who fund it, and support it politically. They are the beneficiaries of the Palestinian cause and partners in the suffering of Gaza’s people.

Han har rett i det. Hamas har aldri lagt skjul på sine hensikter. Det er internasjonale støttespillere, blant annet den nåværende norske regjering, som har et forklaringsproblem.
