The Associated Press already has announced that Hamas is “restoring order” to Gaza, just like Hamas did in July 2007, before the Israeli invasion. The UN is decrying the “alarming” humanitarian situation, just like it did in July 2008, before the Israeli invasion. And British academics are organizing a boycott of Israel, just like they did before the Israeli invasion.
All of the above, however, are silent as to the torture of Palestinians by Hamas which has been taking place since the Israeli withdrawal:
A Fatah official in Ramallah told the Post that at least 100 of his men had been killed or wounded as a result of the massive Hamas crackdown. Some had been brutally tortured, he added. The official said that the perpetrators belonged to Hamas’s armed wing, Izaddin Kassam, and to the movement’s Internal Security Force.
According to the official, at least three of the detainees had their eyes put out by their interrogators, who accused them of providing Israel with wartime information about the location of Hamas militiamen and officials.
None of this is surprising. UN General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon is calling for an investigation of Israeli shelling of UN buildings, but not for an investigation of Hamas‘ use of UN ambulances to transport Hamas fighters, as shown on this video. The media, the UN, and British academics have their victim narrative already set in their heads, and it excludes any victim who does not fit their anti-Israel agenda.
