    > An explosion went off Tuesday morning near a convoy carrying Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, who is visiting the Gaza Strip.

    > The Palestinian Authority blamed Hamas for the explosion, which it said targeted Hamdallah's convoy.

    > Hamdallah added: "Despite what happened we will continue to build our institutions and we will press on with the reconciliation efforts with the help of Egypt. I call on Hamas and all other factions to take part in the national Palestinian council that will convene in April, because this is a critical phase for the Palestinian people.”

    It’s OK, Reddit, Sweden says that Gaza is a stable political environment and that its the government should be treated as a legitimate functional entity.

    Dear Palestine,

    Fix your own problems first before preaching to Israel about us being the cause of all of your issues.

    Finally something where they don’t blame Israel. Probably because they know Israel wouldn’t ‘attempt’ as the outcome would have been different if they decided to proceed with such action. But still top comment is not about blaming Israel.

    It isn’t easy working with a terrorist organization

    If Israel in fact would have been responsible, the good prime minister would have been DEAD…

    Jews still to blame for the bad weather we’re having though.
