Hamas issues Johnston ultimatum

#1
The Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas has threatened to use force to release BBC reporter Alan Johnston by the end of Monday if he is not set free.
"Today is the last day for the captors to release Alan Johnston," a senior Hamas official said.

The reporter was abducted in March by a group calling itself The Army of Islam.

Hamas, which seized control of Gaza last week and was ousted from the Palestinian government, has said reporters should be treated as guests.

"If he is not released, we would use all means to secure his life and to free him"

Nah, never happen. Nobody would go to the ridiculous extreme of faking a rescue mission to score some good publicity, eh?

Anyway, what did Boris do to p*ss off the Palestinians?
