Yesterday's Australian editorial Incompetent or cruel nicely filled in the blank pages accompanying its rival (in my home town of Melbourne, Australia) broadsheet newspaper, the Age. It posits the question whether Hamas is being incompetent or cruel in its manipulation of Gaza's current fuel crisis. However, there's absolutely no reason why it can't be both.

"Hamas is responsible for hundreds of murderous suicide bombings and other terrorist attacks on Israel. This time, however, it seems prepared to let its own men, women and children go hungry. In doing so, it is showing the world that anybody who believes that Israel is the worst enemy of the Palestinian people needs to think again."

Amen to that!
