Life is tough in Gaza

Can't even make a living as a thief these days:

A Hamas suicide bomber blew up two armed Palestinians who tried to rob him at gun point in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas claimed the “stickup men” worked for Israeli intelligence, while Palestinian security forces said the two were ordinary thieves.

Rather than give up his explosives, the bomber detonated them, killing himself and the two robbers near the border fence between Gaza and Israel.

They must hate it when that happens. Thieves can't make a living and suicide bombers can't even reach their targets. And we think our country has problems.
