Now here’s a government shut down that is very welcome

October 9, 2013

It seems that the murderous scum of Hamas are running out of money.  Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.

The World Bulletin site said:

Hamas is struggling to meet its payroll in the Gaza Strip, where income from taxes has been badly hit since neighbouring Egypt started destroying a network of tunnels used to smuggle food, fuel and weapons into enclave.

The crisis means that Gaza’s thousands of civil servants may not receive their full salaries in time for an important Muslim holiday next week.

Egypt, which accuses Hamas of aiding Muslim armed groups in the lawless Sinai desert, has been waging a campaign to destroy the smuggling tunnels that delivered weapons and other goods to the Gaza Strip, which is partially blockaded by Israel.

Hamas, which denies the Egyptian allegations, taxes the traffic through the tunnels – a money stream that has now virtually run dry.

Last month, the Hamas government paid only 77 percent of its $25 million August payroll for Gaza’s 50,000 civil servants.

It said on Tuesday it would make a special payment of 1,000 shekels ($280) to the employees on Thursday before the Eid al-Adha holiday. There is still no word on whether full September salaries will be paid this month.

“What is supposed to be a day of joy and happiness would turn into a nightmare, a disaster, because we cannot afford to feel happy,” said 47-year-old public servant Mohammed Khalil.

During Eid al-Adha, Muslims traditionally slaughter sheep or cattle and share the meat with the poor. Many parents buy new clothes for their children.

Khalil, a father of six, told Reuters he received most of his 1,700 shekel salary for August, but it was not enough to enable him to pay his electricity or water bills.

Hamas, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, has governed Gaza since 2007 and has an uneasy relationship with Egypt’s new army-backed leadership, which toppled the elected president, Mohamed Morsi, a Hamas ally, in July.”

    Interestingly enough Gaza has been a refugee camp since 1918 and not 1948, it was a refugee camp due to the battles between the British Empire and the Ottomans/Germans. Gaza was at one point a major centre of the Bahia faith who welcomed the refugees on humanitarian grounds at the request of the British, mainly Muslim into the city, the Bahia were ejected by the Muslims. So its been a refugee camp and a bunch of ingrates ever since.

      Yup the Fakestinians have always been a bunch of spongers. I believe that they still gobble up a significant amount of UN refugee money despite there being much more worthy recipients who get very little. I’m not surprised to hear that the Bahia were kicked out by the Bearded Savages it’s what they do in so many places where they afflict.
