Israel cuts Gaza electricity after Palestinian president says he will no longer pay the bill for Hamas

Gaza, a good place to raise your kids up.

Israel will cut back electricity supply for Gaza after the Palestinian president said he would no longer pay the energy bill, worsening an energy crisis in the isolated enclave where many people are already without power for 20 hours a day.

Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority (PA), announced in April that his semi-government in the occupied West Bank would not pay the bill for electricity in Gaza, which is run by his rivals in the Islamist militant group Hamas.

The Israeli cabinet decided Sunday that it would accept Mr Abbas’s decision and begin scaling back electricity supply, despite the humanitarian impact on Gazans and concerns that the cuts might increase the likelihood of another war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

The religion of crazy.

    The Israelis need to promulgate the belief that electricity is UN-Islamic.

      Mohammed didn’t have electricity.

        That’s the spirit you two.
        Alternating Current is Zionism!

          They should convert to DC… say 2000volt and 20 amp outlets. If you use plugs like the 12volt cig plugs in vehicles the fakestinians will be tempted to put parts of their anatomy in them.

            A shocking idea!

      Just label it Zionist Power; that should do it.

    Here we go – watch for:
    Human Rights NGO’s that start whining about “Electricity is a Human Right”
    UN whining that Israel as the “occupying power” (even though there is NO occupation) is responsible for providing the necessities to Gazans.
    Toronto Star and Crescent Op Ed “Evil Israel Deprives Gaza Hospitals of Electrical Power” with the usual pictures of dying babies in incubators.

      There are no incubators in Gaza. Hamas confiscated them to use as bio weapon factories.

    SO Canada has sent money to the Palestinian Authority for what reason? Sounds like a Kathleen Wynne style regime – spend money on anything but what is necessary.

      Perhaps she can give them green energy so they won’t need to import electricity.

    I’m pretty sure that If i don’t pay my bills Hydro cuts off my power so, why the hell should those hate filled losers running Gaza get a pass. Besides, shouldn’t they be getting their power from the other half of the Palestinian terrorist cabal run by the goat humpers in Ham Ass and not the avowed enemy they want wiped off the face of the earth?

    This comes after Hamas’s chief financier, Qatar has been smacked down by its Gulf neighbors over this.

    I only wish it was dead of winter and Gaza was in Greenland

    The Palis should convert to solar power. There must be one person in the territory who could install solar panels, or at the least, windmills. After all, solar panels are clean, reliable and leave a very small carbon footprint, unlike the Palestinians themselves.

      They could just copy the designs from those Israeli greenhouses they took such good care of.

    • The Deplorable Rosenmops

      Fakistinians are too dumb, corrupt and lazy to figure out a way to keep the lights on. They need adult supervision for that sort of thing.

      Will not it also raise your own roof ?

  • dukestreet

    Why was Fatah paying Hamas’s bill to begin with? If they don’t want to any more that’s their right. Hamas had better start using some of the cash they get to look after their own people. I doubt they will. They’ll blame Israel and the Anti-Semitics of the world will back them of course.

    Solar panels and Windmills and allah—–
    Is all they really need.
