Hamas Soul Searching?
According to the Jerusalem Post, Ghazi Hamad, a senior Hamas spokesman, questions the direction that Gaza has taken since Israel left the strip last year:
Dismissing Israel's responsibility for the growing state of anarchy and lawlessness in the Gaza Strip, Hamad said it was time for the Palestinians to embark on a soul-searching process to see where they erred.
"We're always afraid to talk about our mistakes," he added. "We're used to blaming our mistakes on others. What is the relationship between the chaos, anarchy, lawlessness, indiscriminate murders, theft of land, family rivalries, transgression on public lands and unorganized traffic and the occupation? We are still trapped by the mentality of conspiracy theories - one that has limited our capability to think."
AP picked up on Hamad's criticisms. See also the LA Times for a better picture of Gaza's "law of the jungle."
