Do You Hear the International Outcry as Aid for Gazans is Stolen by Hamas?

No? Neither do I.

From the linked article:

The $320 million U.S.-built pier that was supposed to help alleviate the supply situation in Gaza is turning out to be a catastrophic failure.

Only a tiny trickle of aid has been delivered to UN warehouses in Gaza. The UN reports that only 10 truckloads of aid arrived on Friday at a World Food Program warehouse in Deir El Balah in Gaza.

On Saturday, only five truckloads of aid arrived at the warehouse. Reuters reports that Palestinians “cleaned out” 11 other truckloads on the way from the pier to the warehouse. There were no deliveries at all on Sunday and Monday.

Reuters [very pro-Hamas - JB] is reporting that most of the aid coming into Gaza from the U.S. military’s pier since Saturday was stolen by Palestinians [read Hamas - JB] as it made its journey to the UN’s warehouse in nearby Deir El Balah.

Hamas has made at least $500 million in profit off humanitarian aid since the start of the war on Oct. 7.

Incredibly, the UN didn’t think about securing the aid trucks until after the aid had been stolen.

Only the UN could be so stupid. [Well, not quite only - JB.]

[Also] food and medicine for Palestinians in Gaza are piling up in Egypt because the Rafah crossing remains closed.

Israel took operational control of the crossing weeks ago, but Cairo so far has refused to cooperate with Israeli authorities to facilitate the entry of aid through Rafah. The Israeli government wants to allow aid into Gaza through the crossing but is unable to do so without Egyptian cooperation.

Egypt doesn’t want to abide by Israel’s inspection policies that are designed to keep Hamas from getting their hands on weapons and explosives. So there’s a stalemate with tens of thousands of tons of aid being held up because Egypt is chafing at the restrictions.

The UN must be destroyed.

What a very predictable fiasco. But what else would you expect from Biden? Or the UN, many of who’s employees turned out to be aiding and abetting Hamas.
