Gaza Comedian Adel Mashoukhi was arrested after staging an impromptu protest against Hamas over the backdrop of the electricity crisis in Gaza. Calling Hamas an “oppressive ruler,” he said: “I want to become a martyr because of Hamas.” No work, no food, no drinking water, and the border crossings are closed, he complained, but “electricity is where we draw the line!” Mashoukhi concluded the video with shouts of “We want electricity!” Shortly after posting the video-clip on his Facebook page, he was arrested by the Hamas authorities. Mashoukhi has 80,000 followers on Facebook, and within 36 hours, the video-clip itself had gained over 260,000 views.
