Hamas to media: Keep your critiques to yourselves

Middle East Newsline is reporting that Hamas has threatened to arrest anyone who is critical of its 'government':
For the first time, the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority has threatened the media in the Gaza Strip.

The Interior Ministry's Executive Force has announced a crackdown on media outlets that criticize the Hamas-led government. EF, which numbers 6,000 officers and engaged in the war against Fatah, said it would prosecute journalists, newspapers, radio and television stations deemed partial.

"We will prosecute media that engages in lying and deception, and ignores the obvious realities," EF said in a statement on Thursday.

The statement came in wake of the bombing of the Saudi-owned Al Arabiya satellite television in Gaza City on Jan. 22. An unknown Islamic group, Righteousness of the Swords, claimed responsibility.
But give them a state reichlet and all of the world's problems will be solved.

Yup, that'll keep the news "fair and balanced."

Why can't anyone see these 2-bit thugs for what they are?
