Once again, Hamas has reportedly threatened Ma'an News Agency:

Last week, the chief editor of Ma'an News Agency received direct threats on his mobile telephone from Hamas spokesperson, Fawzi Barhoum, who demanded that Ma'an avoid criticizing the Hamas movement. He threatened that, if Ma'an does not stop criticizing the Hamas movement, they will embark on a campaign of defamation against our news agency, and accuse it of reporting false news and of antagonizing the Hamas movement.

If I piss off Hamas, I'd be really satisfied with receiving a threat of defamation. Funny, it took them long enough, but now Hamas is showing the world their Fatah face...lil' media darlings. Although, of course, Fatah is still more... moderate.

We're all screwed.
