Prominent Arab Editor, PA Officials Blame Hamas for Gaza Crisis

Finally. Someone in the Arab world wants Hamas to take responsibility for having created their own sh*thole. From Prominent Arab Editor, PA Officials Blame Hamas for Gaza Crisis:

Abdel Rahman Rashed, a Saudi national serving as general manager of the pan-Arab Al-Arabiya news channel, said Hamas was responsible for the suffering of Palestinians in Gaza. Writing in the London-based daily Asharq Alawsat, Rashed questioned the wisdom of firing rockets and mortars at Israel which, he said, was only increasing the suffering of the Palestinians.

PA officials in Ramallah have also blamed Hamas for the crisis in Gaza. PA Information Minister Riad al-Malki said the latest crisis was the result of Hamas' "insistence on creating an Islamic republic in Gaza." A top PA official in Ramallah accused Hamas of ordering bakery owners to keep their businesses closed for the second day running to create a humanitarian crisis. "Hamas is preventing people from buying bread," he said. "They want to deepen the crisis so as to serve their own interests." The official said that, contrary to Hamas' claims, there is enough fuel and flour to keep the bakeries in Gaza operating for another two months. "Hamas members have stolen most of the fuel in Gaza to fill their vehicles," he said.
Sadly, no Arab has yet condemned the perpetual attempt by Hamas to ethnically cleanse Israel of all of her Jewish citizens by repeatedly firing rockets and mortars into Sderot, but, hey, in a perfect world, the Arabs in Gaza would have taken the handoff of territory from Israel and made something good from it. Wait, I take that back. In a perfect world, the Arabs would have, especially the educated among them, looked with the deepest sympathy on the Zionist movement...and wish the Jews a most hearty welcome home, which is what The Emir Fayzal said to Felix Frankfurter of the American Zionist delegation at the Paris Peace Conference in 1919.

Joke: How many Arabs does it take to screw in a lightblub?
Answer: None. They'd rather sit in the dark and blame the Jews. (Case in point)
