The UN agency which oversees delivery of aid to the Palestinian Territories has suspended deliveries to Gaza after Hamas last week stole 3500 blankets and 450 food packages from a warehouse, and this week stole ten trucks containing aid for the Palestinian people.

After previous thefts of aid, constant violence, including the torture and murder of Palestinian supporters of Fatah, the neglect and destruction of key infrastructure, the sated intention of continuing attacks on Israel, and the utter chaos and misery of Gaza, it baffles me that anyone can still believe Hamas to be a legitimate government.
