Hamas Does Have Priorities You Know

Hamas runs Gaza can't afford fuel or are unwilling to pay the Palestinian authority to bring in fuel from Israel.

Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) - A shortage of fuel halted the production of electricity across the Gaza Strip on Friday, said the energy authority of the Islamist movement Hamas, which controls the Palestinian enclave.

"We have completely stopped the operation of (Gaza's sole) power plant this morning at 6:00 am (0400 GMT) because we don't have a single litre of fuel," Fathi el-Sheikh Khalil, the authority's deputy chairman, told AFP.

An AFP correspondent in the Gaza Strip said the electricity supply had been cut off across most of the territory.

Khalil blamed the power outage on Egypt's destruction of tunnels used for bringing fuel to Gaza and accused the Western-backed Palestinian Authority of charging Hamas too much for its fuel.

So they just can't pay for electricity for the people of Gaza.

But what is important enough to separate Hamas from its money? Stuff to kill Jews with.

On Thursday (24.10) more than 14,000 Palestinian weapons were seized at the Ashdod port.
The container was marked as suspicious and after the opening, there were found thousands cold weapons and other war materiel.
Maybe they should have spend that on fuel, because now they are out the money and also out of gas.

You are doing a heckuva job there Hamas.

1 If you are going to be a 7th century country, you don't need electricity. Guns; yes. Makes perfect sense to me. Besides, blackouts are for the little people. The powerful Hamas people will have generators and lots and lots of gas stored for their use in these tough times. You know...everybody has to sacrifice! Except the elites.

2 Hamass will just try something else. Someone is funding them. Someone is funding them very well. Money talks. Weapons walk.

3 I was going to say something but TimothyJ said it already: dark age for the little people. I'm certain that on Saturday the Imans will explain how the juice took their electricity away with trained pigeons and witchcraft.
