Gaza is becoming increasingly radicalised as Hamas continues its crackdown on civil liberties, press freedom and the rights of women. In the last few weeks a number of journalists have been arrested and accused of being involved in "suspicious activities"

Gee....what a surprise! (Heavy on the sarcasm here.)

Islam HATES freedoms of speech, press, religion and artistic expression. It hates civil rights for women and it hates education.

Civil Liberties, Democracy, Human Rights - these are all un-Islamic concepts. Why implementation of Islamic laws by extreme Islamists caused anyone a surprise?

Pam, the real sarcasm is with those naive people who want to reward these murderers with their own state.

“Most people in Gaza, even the most conservative, oppose this. Gazans are already very conservative and they don’t need Hamas dictating their religion to them.” -!!! (for Bob to read and take in!)
Guess since the latest efforts of talks between Abbas and Meshal in cairo failed again Hamas is stepping on the gas again, horrible.

Hamas has been cracking down for a long time now, and those who understand its aims would see this as inevitable. As an organization of the Muslim Brotherhood, like the Morsi government, it is an inherently theocratic, fascist and totalitarian movement that used Nazi Germany to look to for its model in many ways, including the Islamic Youth Movement, which was modeled after the Nazi Youth Movement.

(Hitler, the Nazis, Jerusalem Mufti Amin El Husseini and Muslim Brotherhood founder and leader Hassan al-Banna were all great admirers of each other.)

As a fundamentalist-radicalized Islamist movement, the MB and Hamas has as its core raison d'etre Jew- and Israel-hatred. It has tried to present itself as "victim" to the world, but thrives on violently imposing its will on others. If it is not actively engaged in attacking Israel and Jews, it is so habituated to violence, it naturally turns on its own population to exact punishment and feed its never-quenched thirst for blood. The crack-downs will continue to escalate.

For their own protection, Western journalists in Gaza have long learned to close their eyes to what Hamas's leaders didn't want outsiders to see and be reported, but at some point the very shocking and unpleasant reality about Hamas, its aims and methods of control could not be ignored.

It is quite likely that the journalists who have been detained by Hamas wanted to come clean and tell the world about the truth of what's going on in Gaza, but to do so would mean calling Hamas on its murderous, totalitarian mission and it cannot tolerate that.

Thanks for posting, Cal.

This isn't news to anyone who pays attention. Now, where are all the usual Hamas loving Israel haters we always see on Care2 praising this bunch of primitive Islamist thugs and hating everything about Israel - the only free, democratic, progressive nation surrounded by these black holes of Islamic oppression, intolerance, hatred and violence? You know who they are. Why are they so silent on this?

One thiing this article leaves out, as usual, is the terrible cruelty imposed on gay people in Gaza by Islamist Hamas. Few people care but it is another atrocity that tells the truth about this failed 'state'. Hamas persecutes, tortures, imprisons and lynches gay people, while in nearby Israel gay people are free and have rights. Tel Aviv was named the world's most gay-friendly city in 2011, something no Muslim-ruled place could ever achieve with Islam's command to kill gays, among many others. Which is the 'Apartheid State'??

There is no freedom of religion, conscience, speech or press in Gaza or any other Muslim dominated land. Allah, the merciful, forbids it. Where is the outrage in the western media and from our so-called 'leaders' of society, government and religion?

None of these hateful things are done in Israel so why are there so many Jew-hating Israelophobes among the western media and so-called 'Liberals' who ignore every evil done to the Palestinian people by their own oppressive leaders? Almost 1/3 of Israelis are Arabs - Muslims and Christians - who have freedom of religion, speech, conscience and press, but none of this exists in Palestine, especially Gaza, infamous for its brutality and corruption, or in any other Muslim ruled country.

Israelis have produced so many scientific and medical advances for the whole of humanity's betterment, far out of proportion to their numbers, compared to the rest of the world. What have the Palestinians contributed but suicide bombers, repression, cruelty and rocket attacks behind the human shields of their children and women.

Yet there are all those radical leftists, siding with the fascist right, who hate everything about Jews and Israel and close their eyes to all the atrocities committed by Hamas and all the other Orthodox Muslims around the world daily. They have no credibility.

Good points, Carola. Hamas is a terrorist organisation; nothing more, nothing less. No Israeli government should have anything to do with them.
The loony left will have a lot to answer for when the history of this period is written.
