GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- Assailants burned a Gaza resort at dawn Wednesday, the manager said.

Imad Al-Wazeer told Ma'an a group of 30 armed and masked men arrived at the Rais resort in Gaza and threatened employees.

The resort was damaged in Israel's Operation Cast Lead but Al-Wazeer says he reopened the facility in order to show Israel that the people of Gaza would live their lives in spite of the attack.

"This time, unfortunately, my resort was damaged by Palestinian hands," he said.

The resort cost some $120,000 to establish and has swimming pools, restaurants and other facilities. After the attack, however, 13 employees have lost their jobs, Al-Wazeer says.

He held the police in Gaza responsible for the attack, saying they should provide security.

"I asked the police several times to provide protection and security but no one paid any attention," he said.

The actions of dark forces related to AlQaida and fanatical salafists? Whoever they are , they are not real Palestinians and certainly havent graduated from high school. What fascinates me is Hamas governmemt's' usual silence or inaction to protect citizens.

What to expect with Hamas in the government:
- The police (Hamas) either wanted to be bribed, for their "protection", or
- The resort was allowed to much freedom, regarding women's dress-code.

Shame Shame on those responsible. If this is what we can expect from a future Palestinian State then it is better not to have one. We need a state with respect for the rule of law and for individual freedoms. Such a State must protect all peoples rights weather they are religious devotes, secular, or non believers. Shame on Hamas for allowing this to happen....you look more and more foolish with each passing day. Apparently the Zionists have murdered those leaders with any intelligence.

This is so bad for a future Palestinian state!!! A few people in Palestine (SPECIALLY GAZA) dont want a state, and would do anything make that happen! I can only feel sorry for the educated Gazans that are leaving Gaza because it's not a decent place to live in anymore!
