I know that I am a vehement critic of Palestinians but on this occassion I want to express my support for those who have been taking part in protests in Gaza against the territory’s Hamas rulers – despite a ban on public gatherings. Prayers were organised which turned into marches through main towns. Some people were injured in clashes. Protesters accuse the Islamist Hamas of violating civil liberties and using mosques to spread political propaganda. The BBC’s Aleem Maqbool in Gaza says this is the biggest show of opposition to Hamas since it took control in June. Let us be clear; Hamas is evil incarnate and a display of opposition to Hamas from ordinary Palestinians is good news. Unlike many on the international left who want to appease the savages in Hamas, some residents in Gaza seek to oppose them. Well done.
