Hamas selling humanitarian aid for profit?

Maybe this has something to do with why Gazans are 'suffering.' Arutz Sheva reports that reporter Mitchell Prothero "has written an article for the National" (we'll see why that phrasing is significant in a minute) reporting that Hamas has so much 'humanitarian aid' that they are selling it to 'poor Gazans' for profit.
Prothero spoke to a commander in the Islamic Jihad terrorist group, who complained about being forced to purchase medicine for his son when the medicine, donated by Norway, was clearly labeled “Not for resale.”

“I had to go to a Hamas pharmacy to make sure the pills weren't fake or made from poor materials in Egypt,” he explained. “If you want real medicine, you have to buy the aid Europe sends us.”

A Gaza businessman said, “If you're not in Hamas, you get nothing.”

Other Gaza residents who spoke to Prothero described Hamas as being firmly in control of life in Gaza. One said Hamas's armed forces – including police, military, and intelligence – currently number approximately 35,000, up from 6,000 four years ago.
But here's the most curious part. I went to The National's web site and the article wasn't there. Did they refuse to print it? Is it an old story (a similar story came out last year after Operation Cast Lead)? Hmmm.


For any of you who do not read the comments, the article has been found, and it is here.
