Gaza Marathon, We Hardly Knew You

gaza marathon1Do you recall the planned Gaza marathon?

Well, UNRWA has announced its cancellation due to the evil Joooos  - Hamas!

UNRWA regrets to anounce (sic) that it has had to cancel the third UNRWA marathon which was to be held on 10 April. This disappointing decision follows discussions with the authorities in Gaza who have insisted that no women should participate.

Registered participants who still wish to come to Gaza are welcome. UNRWA is working on a programme of other events, which will be forwarded to those interested as soon as possible. UNRWA sincerely regrets the inconvenience this causes those who planned to participate in the marathon.

How about UNRWA regretting the inconvenience to women of living under Hamas rule?

I am keen to hear what the likes of the ISM, Free Gaza, Lauren Booth and George Galloway have to say about it, although I suspect it will sound a lot like this.

    Congratulations. All you gals just won a nonparticipation hijab instead of the customary t-shirt. Things are different in Gaza.

    Palestine…because the world needs one more state where women, minorities, and gays are denied basic human rights.

    @ AussieDave: Are you the Australian pro-Israel Blogger that William Strook alludes to in his fictional “Israel Strikes”? Not sure what page, as I am reading the Kindle version.

      I assume so. Will also sent me a copy and when I came across that passage, I smiled.

        I thought you were a real person and not just a fictional character in some book no one has heard of. Say it isn’t so!

    If it hadn’t been cancelled and someone tripped and fell it would be called a Zionist assassination war crime.
