Masked men attack Gaza summer camp - World news - Mideast/N. Africa - msnbc.comTwo dozen masked men vandalized a U.N. summer camp for children in Gaza early Monday, burning and slashing tents, toys and a plastic swimming pool. It was the second such attack in a month.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but Islamic extremists have accused the main U.N. aid agency here of corrupting Gaza's youth with its summer program of games, sports and human rights lessons for 250,000 children.
The article goes on to note that Hamas is the main competitor in running such camps. While it remains to be seen whether Hamas actually carried out the attack, it should be noted that Hamas has looted UN supply offices and stolen gasoline from deliveries in the past. More importantly, it should be noted that there has been a slow but unmistakable trend toward Islamization in the Gaza Strip since Hamas violently seized control of the territory in June 2007.
