How much does Hamas treasure its heritage?
Its own Deputy Tourism Minister answers that question. “Regularly, I receive offers to buy antiquities from people who have managed to steal them from government-run heritage sites…. I think that the authorities should invest more in their ability to take care of the monuments in Gaza. Heritage is something that can’t be lost.”
Maybe it can’t be lost, but it can be thrown away, especially considering the Palestinian Authority’s unrivaled ability to “never lose an opportunity to lose an opportunity.”
