Peace activists, UN workers killed in Hamas offensive

Tuesday, June 19, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

During the final hours of Hamas' military conquest of the Gaza Strip last Thursday, two peace activists and a pair of UN aid workers were gunned down by members of the terror group.

The first incident occurred when some 1,000 unarmed Palestinian demonstrators marched in Gaza City demanding that Hamas end its murderous rampage, reported Ha'aretz. As the protesters approached a Hamas position, militants opened fire, killing two people and sending the rest scattering in fear.

Shortly after, two employees of the UN refugee relief agency operating in Gaza were shot dead by Hamas gumen, prompting the world body to suspend its aid work in the blood-soaked coastal strip.

Neither slaying of innocent, unarmed civilians by Gaza's new Islamic overlords was deemed headline news by the mainstream international press.

Commentators noted that had the victims been killed by Israeli soldiers, their deaths would have been front page news for days, as well as triggering a special session of every relevant UN council.
