ANALYSIS – Anyone who still thinks that those murdering thugs that call themselves Islamic State, or Al Nusra for that matter, represent the Islamic world only need to look at the Palestinians of Gaza to see who really are the voice of Muslims. Since establishing an Islamic state in Gaza in 2007, because the international community would not accept the outcome of a democratic election that gave them the right to govern the occupied territories, the ‘world’ has a turned a blind eye to the ongoing crimes against the Hamas controlled Gaza strip. If the blockades and restrictions were not enough, the Palestinians of Gaza over half of whom are children, have been attacked by the might of the Israeli army who have exaggerated the threat of rocket fire to extract disproportionate revenge on a tiny strip of land that has no army, no navy or any means of defending itself against a hitech army that is armed and backed by a superpower. The first war was horrendous, the second came within an inch of what became the third in 2014 when Gaza was pounded and it’s children murdered whilst we all watched the world cup in Brazil. And yet this continues to this day, daily attacks and humiliations along with a devastating siege and restrictions. If Hamas are indeed poor at governing the Gaza strip as the World Bank claims today ask yourself this would anyone be able to rule under the current circumstances and even more importantly when will this end?
