12 Years Ago, Hamas Took Control of Gaza
12 years ago, Hamas took control over the Gaza Strip. No elections have been held since and Hamas continues to dominate the political landscape.
Currently, unemployment is at 31% & that number is even higher for young people. 53% of Gazans live below the poverty line with a per capita GDP per of only $876. Hamas incites people to protest and attack Israelis. At the same time, they repress all forms of dissent among their own population. The people of Gaza continue to suffer while humanitarian aid is diverted to promoting terror. The group continues to fire rockets at Israel civilians and carry out other forms of aggression.
Hamas has put terror ahead of its own people.
