Gaza Under Hamas: A Taliban-like Regime?
ICC Note: Christians victims in Palestinian controlled Gaza Strip
7/3/10 Palestine (CBN) -- On Monday, June 28, masked gunmen destroyed a U.N. summer camp facility in the Palestinian Gaza Strip. A U.N. official called it "another example of the growing levels of extremism in Gaza."
"Hamas is forcing people to live within the confines of a harsh moral code and punishing those who try to exercise their few remaining rights," said in a statement by Human Rights Watch, a group who opposes Israel's current policy toward Gaza.
Since Hamas overthrew Fatah in a bloody 2007 coup, many Christians have also fled Gaza. Several Christian stores and schools have been vandalized and a prominent Christian, Rami Ayad, was murdered by Islamic radicals.
