Hamas Oppressing Palestinian Arabs

Palestinian Arabs forced the closing of the Rafah crossing, between Hamastan and Egypt, by shelling it. This stranded six thousand of their own brethren in Egypt.

Trying to ease their plight, Israel offered to let the stranded civilians use the Kerem Shalom crossing, which connects Israel, Hamastan and Egypt, but Hamas responded to that offer by saying if the Kerem Shalom crossing was opened they would attack it with mortars and gunfire, even if it meant killing thousands of Palestinian Arabs.

At last word, Israel is waiting to see whether Hamas can be convinced to let the stranded Palestinian Arabs into Hamastan without murdering them.
