- Hamas Under Fire for Failed Policies – Yousef Alhelou
Palestinians in Gaza are increasingly expressing frustration with Hamas for failing to provide solutions to their problems. Palestinians are questioning why Hamas has stayed in power but is unable to provide a decent life for Gazans.
Those who want to work in the governmental sector in Gaza must be a Hamas loyalist or at least a supporter. Priority to receive food aid also depends on how well a person is connected to the Islamic movement. Housing for those whose homes were destroyed in wars with Israel are also prioritized by level of loyalty to Hamas.
Mass migration is taking place from Gaza to settle in Europe. Activists and journalists have left because they were unable to express themselves or report without intimidation. The writer is a Palestinian journalist living in London. (Arab Weekly-UK)
