Back in January 2009, the French medics had a different sense of Gaza's reality: "They were "utterly shocked" by the situation on the ground in the Gaza Strip [this report said at the time]. Several of the doctors said they could not believe "the overuse of power by the Israeli army" while another said he saw "internationally forbidden weaponry [used] against civilians."
While they're waiting for the international humanitarian law police to show up and take their statement, someone might point out to the idealistic, dis-equipped French that the goons of Hamas have never had the slightest compunction about undermining, destroying or hampering outside efforts to do for the Palestinian Gazan Arabs what the Hamas regime itself does not.
They have, for instance, frequently rocketed the very Israeli power stations that deliver energy to Gaza [video clip here].
To get a sense of what Hamas is really good at, we suggest Googling the expression "Hamas vows revenge". We did it just now. There are about 76,000 matches.
