GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – The mayor of Gaza City Rafiq Makky on Monday submitted his resignation to the Hamas-run government’s minister of local governance.

Makky told Ma’an that it was the second time he submitted his resignation.

The first time, he explained, was three months ago, but it was turned down. In both cases, the decision to resign was due to “personal and health-related” reasons, he added.

The mayor highlighted that he was asked to stay in office until an “appropriate replacement” is found.

I wonder what his real reasons are? Perhaps he is not seeing eye to eye with the corrupt Hamas that are stealing all the aide money to buy ammunitions and live an elite lifestyle at the expense of the Gazans because it suits Hamas to keep the people poor and oppressed so that the international community will feel sorry for them. It would be wise for all Gazans to reject Hamas and insist on a secular governance that is not based on sharia but on humanitarian values like the west.

That Hamas is bad for one's health is a fact almost every Gazan, with the exception of the Hamas hierarchy, can attest.
