Hamas seizes UN food aid and blankets

Those nice, cuddly Arabs also known as Hamas aren’t so nice or cuddly.

The UN Relief and Works Agency said that armed police who answer to Gaza’s Islamist rulers stormed into the building on Tuesday night and removed 3,500 blankets and over 400 food parcels destined for distribution to 500 families.

“They were armed, they seized this, they took it by force,” said Christopher Gunness, the agency’s spokesman, adding that the confiscation of humanitarian aid was “absolutely unacceptable”.

He said that the police had seized the aid after UNRWA officials refused to voluntarily hand it over to the Hamas-run ministry of social affairs.

I bet Christopher Gunness now regrets being a patsy for Hamas during Operation Cast Lead by accusing Israel of all sorts of atrocities they didn’t commit.
