From the "Why Am I Not Surprised?" Files . . .

The United Nations' premier "humanitarian works" agency, U.N.R.W.A., informed the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) on Friday, February 6th, that it is suspending its humanitarian aid deliveries to the Gaza Strip after Hamas had, in broad daylight, stolen hundreds of tons of supplies the United Nations organization had transferred to the Palestinian territory from donor countries around the world.

The seizure of the more than 200 tons of supplies took place Thursday and in response, U.N.R.W.A. officials informed the Gaza Coordination and Liaison Administration that it was suspending its deliveries to the Gaza Strip until further notice. The supplies confiscated included flour and other basic commodities as well as camoflage uniforms, boots, and other non-humanitarian items.

The transfer of 40 truckloads of "humanitarian supplies" - some 800 tons - planned for Sunday has already been canceled.

Officials in Jerusalem said the announcement by U.N.R.W.A. constituted an involuntary and grudging UN confirmation of Israel's position, that Hamas is using the Palestinian population in Gaza "cruelly and cynically" and is solely responsible for the hardship there and not the defensive closing of crossings by the Israeli military.

The theft of humanitarian aid exposes the true face of Hamas and of its supporters in Iran and completely discredits the picture of a starving and destitute population as portrayed by Reuters, the B.B.C., AP, France 24 and other Western pro-terrorist media organizations whose CEOs and senior editorial officials have profited quite handsomely from grateful Arab "gratuities" for their work over the years.

It was the second time this week that Hamas stole UN supplies transferred to the Gaza Strip for "impoverished" Palestinians. The first incident took place Tuesday evening when armed Hamas police broke into a Gaza warehouse packed with UN humanitarian supplies and seized tens of thousands of blankets and food packages as well as the non-humanitarian military material.

Interestingly, an earlier news item widely reported by the media on the damage to a U.N. warehouse in Gaza by an Israeli tank shell graphically showed the damage caused by the shell but also, inadvertantly, showed that the warehouse was stuffed to the rafters with supplies that the U.N. had agreed with both Hamams and Fatah to withold from the population in order to bolster the media images of the Palestinians' claims of "poverty" and "destitution" caused by the closing of crossing points by the Israeli military.

The seizure of these supplies by Hamas took place after U.N.R.W.A. staff earlier refused to hand over the aid supplies to the Hamas-run Ministry of Social Affairs.

"We received a phone call this morning from U.N.R.W.A. officials that they have decided to suspend their deliveries after Hamas stole supplies from one of the organization's warehouses in the Gaza Strip," explained a senior official.

The IDF had earlier noticed the trend during Operation Cast Lead last month, when despite the fighting, Israel transferred close to 80 trucks a day to the Strip which were promptly seized by Hamas officials and sold for exorbitant blackmarket prices to the Arab population.

While this particular incident resulted in a negative response from the U.N., this has been an on-going co-operative practice between the U.N. agency and Palestinian terrorist organizations ever since the establishment of U.N.R.W.A. offices inside the Palestinian camps and cities over the past forty years.

Nuaf Atar, a Fatah operative captured during the operation, confirmed the war profiteering by Hamas officials and party members when he told the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) that Hamas government officials "took over" humanitarian aid Israel allowed in to the Gaza Strip and sold it when it was supposed to be distributed for free.

While U.N.R.W.A. Spokesman Sami Mshasha confirmed that the organization had suspended its deliveries to Gaza after Hamas stole its supplies, he refused any comment on past complicity by his agency in withholding supplies from the Gaza and West Bank populations or his agency's close relationship with internationally designated terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

"This is the second incident this week and this is a point of great concern for us and sets a bad precedent and if we are to provide services to people in Gaza after such an ordeal we need assurances that our work will be unimpeded," Mshasha said. He reportedly continued,"We cannot subjugate our work to the Ministry of Social Affairs in Gaza, since that cuts deeply into our profits"

If it weren't so tragic, it would be laughable to consider that the old adage about "there is no honor among theives" has rarely been so clearly illustrated as in this case where the U.N.'s premier "humanitarian aid agency", U.N.R.W.A., which for years has collaborated with and provided logistical and material support to Palestinian terrorists, has now been victimized by those same terrorists they so enthusiastically supported.

There truly is a G-d in this world . . .
