In May, Islamist thugs perpetrated two major outrages in Gaza that drew almost no attention from Western media. First, Hamas officials demolished more than a dozen Palestinian homes built without permits, in the process assaulting residents and beating women with sticks. The next week, masked gunmen raided a UN summer camp after midnight, destroying its facilities and threatening the staff with murder for offering “un-Islamic” activities like games and swimming. Militants want children to attend only official Hamas camps. These incidents got scant coverage while media obsessed over Israel’s determination to prevent violent, pro-terrorist activists from delivering supplies to strengthen the Hamas regime. Purportedly objective observers readily forgive vicious behavior from Palestinians pledged to Israel’s destruction, but criticize common sense defense by an embattled Jewish state that wants only end to violence from its neighbors.
