Missing the Government of Thieves

The protesters in Ramallah – Palestinian Authority workers who have not received their salaries for the last seven months – shouted: “Not Ismail, not Haniyeh [the Hamas prime minister], we want back the government of haramiyeh.” Haramiyeh means “thieves.” What is heard in the West Bank and Gaza Strip is: Hamas may be clean, but when the Fatah thieves were in power, our salaries were assured. Fatah is having a hard time digesting its removal from office and is behind the strikes, acting to topple the elected government.
