Hamas apologizes after police beat female activists

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Hamas government in Gaza apologized on Wednesday after reports emerged of security forces attacking female activists in Gaza City on Tuesday, a statement said.

"The government clearly apologizes for what has happened, and the Ministry of Interior will form a commission of inquiry to determine the circumstances of the incident, because what happened does not reflect the culture of the government or the Palestinian people," director of Hamas' media office Ehab al-Ghusein said.

A protest, organized by women's organizations including the general union of Palestinian women, was held outside the parliament building on Tuesday to demand national reconciliation.

Iktimal Hamad, a member of the union's secretariat, told Ma'an that police ordered protesters to leave the area.

I know people are concerned about the mistreatment of Palestinian activists, especially women and children.

1. "A comission of inquiry to determine the circumstances of the incident"

That's government-speak for "ain't gonna do shit"

2. Cowards ...Hamas beating up Women ...,

I can not find this in any Western Newspapers.

Disgusting Behavior.

If it were Israel who did this base uncivilized backward thing , it would be on the front page of every paper.

4. And DUers look the other way

This is not the kind of story that generates much interest around these parts.
