Trouble in paradise
This story about Hamas gunmen shooting dead one of their own teenage supporters during a demonstration has been widely reported over the weekend – except by the BBC. Presumably its staff have been thrown into a state of confusion by the inexplicable demonstrations against Gaza's new rulers. And obviously the people of Gaza aren't able to tune in to the BBC news; if they could they'd know that Hamas are benevolent and peace-loving masters, whose plans to turn the Strip into a cross between Disneyworld and the town in The Truman Show are being temporarily thwarted by a Yankee-Zionist conspiracy.
