My Mideast Punchlines: lights out…..

Out of fuel, Hamas shut down Gaza’s only electricity plant last night. This leaves the Strip with two to four hours of electricity. The Palestinian Authority recently notified Israel it would no longer pay for fuel shipments to the Gaza as Mahmoud Abbas turns the screws on Hamas.

Which only goes to prove that while Israel is a Light Unto Nations, internecine strife is plunging the Palestinians into darkness. With apparently no light at the end of their tunnel of suffering, Gazans have no one to blame but themselves. By electing Hamas, they made their bed and now have to lie in it — with or without a table lamp.
